D P O Johannes Terblanche was Killed in Action during Rhodesian Bush War.


Birth & Upbringing: Johannes was born 1953 in Bulawayo.
Military Service: The BSA Police was very much a para-military service and was the nation's first line of defense. Young policemen were thus thrust into armed conflict during the insurgency of the later 1960's and the decade which followed. Those who appear on the BSA Police Roll of Honour (War) are afforded full military honours in the true sense.
Occupation: Policeman - joined the BSA Police in October 1971; Reg. No. 8689; served until March 1977
Demise: KIA - ambush while serving as a Detective Patrol Officer with Criminal Investigation Department in Maranda TTL (Operation Repulse).[1] [2].
