The Battle Of Amalinde
Contents1 The Battle of Amalinde1.1 Ngqika’s strategy 1.2 Ndlambe’s strategy2 The End of the Battle 3 See also 4 External links 5 ReferencesThe Battle of Amalinde[edit] In October 1818, two AmaXhosa chiefs of the Rharhabe clan, namely: Chief Ngqika and his paternal uncle Chief Ndlambe, went to battle in Amalinde, the isiXhosa name for the Debe Hollows of Kommetjie, 19 kilometres west of King Williams Town [1], in what is today part of East London, Eastern Cape. However, the exact site of the battle remains uncertain. Ngqika’s father, Mlawu, died when Ngqika was too young to rule and therefore his uncle Ndlambe, as per custom, became the regent. Under Ndlambe’s leadership, the chieftaincy grew in strength as he consolidated his power by absorbing smaller chiefdoms or expelling them to far afield lands. It was in 1795 when Ngqika had entered manhood that he soon demanded his rightful place as regent and leader of the AmaRharhabe

(or Netherlands
Netherlands
East-Indies; Dutch: Nederlands(ch)-Indië; Indonesian: Hindia Belanda) was a Dutch colony consisting of what is now Indonesia. It was formed from the nationalised colonies of the Dutch East India Company, which came under the administration of the Dutch government in 1800. During the 19th century, the Dutch possessions and hegemony were expanded, reaching their greatest territorial extent in the early 20th century. This colony was one of the most valuable European colonies under the Dutch Empire's rule,[4] and contributed to Dutch global prominence in spice and cash crop trade in the 19th to early 20th century.[5] The colonial social order was based on rigid racial and social structures with a Dutch elite living separate from but linked to their native subjects.[6] The term Indonesia

came into use for the geographical location after 1880

Though unusual, as most national militaries integrate their medical structures into their existing service branches, the SANDF regards this structure as being the most efficient method of providing care and support to the SANDF's personnel. It is a significant actor in the effort to control HIV/AIDS within the SANDF.Contents1 History 2 Rationalisation 3 Organisational Structure3.1 Formations3.1.1 Mobile Military Health Formation 3.1.2 Tertiary Military Health Formation 3.1.3 Area Military Health Formation 3.1.4 Military Health Training Formation 3.1.5 Military Health Support Formation3.2 General Support Base 3.3 Directorates & Services 3.4 Proficiency Insignia4 Leadership 5 See also 6 ReferencesHistory[edit] The predecessor of

As the war progressed, the intensity of air operations increased until in the late 1980s, the SAAF were compelled to fly fighter missions against Angolan aircraft in order to maintain tactical air superiority. On conclusion of the Border War in 1990, aircraft numbers were severely reduced due to economic pressures as well as the cessation of hostilities with neighbouring states
