This is a most unusual story so bear with me. The above photo has nothing to do with Hong Kong but then again it does...??? The M.Unit were out training and Hugh Healy Brown, the MU 2IC, turned up with a new member. A person of mixed heritage and introduced by the name of Inspector Raz Erazmus. RHKP. A person full of character..However with the full approval of our bosses we spent a lot of time together whilst he learnt our crafts of bomb disposal, shooting, planning, stealth, staying alive and logistics which certainly opened his eyes and us getting his bum out of the fire on some things when he came out with us on a job or 4 for experience, then he went 'on leave' and we never saw him again. My tour came to an end and I left HK. About 4 years later thro our grapevine I heard that Raz had been killed in 'South Africa' by a rebel mortar bomb thro his landrover, so the remainder of the MU saluted the memory of Raz. I had joined the UK police by this time and again delved into my past trades. In 1996 I was called in front of the Chief Constable and asked to explain??? The South African Govt had sent a delegation to the UK to look into firearms in all its aspects and the Home Office through the Foreign Office had received instruction that Ray Carpenter was to do conduct the meeting with them no one else. So our big boss wanted to know what was going on, how did the HO. FO and the SAG get my name. I dont know. And that is the photo above. Left to right. Mike a UK 'civil servant' then Brigadier General Claus Bossman. SA Army Major M'komo ANC. Then ??? a leut. in the SA intelligence corps then me. I had them with me for 4 days x 10 hours and covered everything in their file to do list ,then I happened to mention to BG. Bossman about Raz, one of the RHKP MU going to SA and sadly getting killed and the BG said "I'll tell him your concern when I see him." It turned out that Raz. Insp. RHKP. MU was the Director of the S.African secret service and had got dead as a cover story whilst he got to work providing evidence against Winnie Madella for tribal killings and months later Raz was on UK telly in court in SA. telling all. I didn't get an invite to SA just a thank you. So how about that for a story with photo, you couldn't even make that one up and goes to show how well regarded the people and training of the RHKP were even in far away countries and how he put that training to work. He is still there today. Enjoy that? unusual eh!
