Knew a couple of lads like that when I was in the REP. Both deserted (tired of the bullshit!), they didn't take discipline well! But I would of had any one of them in my Ã©quipe and not a worry! This lad I heard of later from the reptile network. Thinking it might be him.I found this article. (...) "One of these older legionnaires was called Ron Pereveresoff. He was Canadian originally and had fought in the Rhodesian Bush War with the Rhodesian Light Infantry then he had done five years in the REP. After that he had joined the Isreali army. I met him as he had rejoined the REP."(...)
(...) "Years later I heard how Ron Pereversoff died whilst fighting against the Serbs for the Kosovars. He was a Lieutenant commanding a company. They were joined by a bunch of "mujahedin" volunteers who were immediately disgusted to find a Jew fighting on their side. One night they shot him in the head while he was sleeping." (...)
There were a lot like him. Got pissed off with the legion and went elsewhere. None the less he was a good lad. So let him rest in peace.Hi Mark I too saw that article. Lots of inaccuracies though. Ronnie didn't fight for the Kosovars - as far as I know. He was in the (Croatian) HVO who fought in Croatia and some of them later in Bosnia. My understanding of how he died does not match what was in that article. He was indeed shot but he died on the way to hospital or that is what I was told by a very good friend of his.
