Harmon Cusack writes, "Dave and I, at the time, were in the same unit, RIC, and he took over from me at our Mtoko base. At the time I informed him that there were 12 terrorists operating in the area. Intelligence at that time confirmed that our C/S was their next target. The ambush took place along a dirt road about 15 km from our base camp. David was driving the first vehicle and took the brunt of the initial fire fight. The rest of the C/S of 6 personnel returned fire and went into an immediate follow up. A contact ensued later that day with the same group and two terrorists were killed along with Dave when a faulty grenade, fired from a G3, exploded."
