Abstract

Part Two of this article discusses the nature of the onslaught against South Africa, the probable needs of the South African Navy in the event of a multi-dimensional potential maritime attack on South Africa and draws a parallel between the different types of vessels and equipment we have and those that would be preferable in order to successfully avert the threat against the Republic of South Africa. He subsequently discusses the South African Coast Guard and maritime defence systems of the country and continues to examine the role of Indians and Coloureds in the South African Navy. South African harbours and dockyards and in particular the role of Walvis Bay are discussed.The author concludes with the observation that we in South Africa should never forget that he who desires peace, should prepare for war.
