Rebels appear and disappear as the story of the South Africa response to the Royal Navy’s request that they destroy the wireless station at Windhoek in German South West Africa, now Namibia, continues. The South Africans must first deal with rebels in their own country and the government forces found themselves chasing the shadows of Kemp, De Wet and Beyers across the Veldt. Given the job of finding and dealing with Beyers, Koos Kruger, now Tom Clarke, is expendable and caught between President Botha and Jan Smuts, the Minister of Defence.
