South Africa's D-day veterans
M Bisset
Scientia Militaria: South African Journal of Military Studies , 1994,
Abstract: Although some 657 members of the South African Union Defence Forces served in North West Europe between D-Day on 6 June 1944 and VE-Day on 8 May 1945, it would seem that relatively few of them were present on D-Day. South Africa's main contributions to the war effort were made in Ethiopia, Madagascar, the Western Desert, Italy and on her own home front which included the vital Cape Sea Route.

W. Bisset
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/10-4-691
Abstract: No article has previously been written on the buttons of the SA Navy and its predecessors. As a complete history of these buttons will necessitate interviews with a considerable number of pensioned naval personnel and the sources of the SADF Archives will first have, to be consulted, Lt Cdr Bisset has in the mean time submitted this intermediary report, together with very interesting photographic material on the subject. More detailed information on th'e buttons of the SA Navy and its predecessors that readers may wish to offer, will be most welcome.

Bisset,Juan A.;
Revista Cubana de Medicina Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: a review of the effective strategies, outlooks and tactics connected with the management of resistance was made. it was explained that these tactics are not excluding, since some of their elements may be used to set up a long-term resistance management program, and that the strategy should be based on a deep knowledge of the implications for each candidate insecticide resistance, and of the ecology and biology of those species involved. it was also stressed that this strategy should comprise all the non-chemical available fighting measures.
Uso correcto de insecticidas: control de la resistencia
Juan A. Bisset
Revista Cubana de Medicina Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: Se hizo una revisión de las estrategias efectivas para el control de la resistencia, las perspectivas, las tácticas. Se planteó que estas tácticas no son excluyentes pues algunos de sus elementos se pueden usar para formular un programa de control de la resistencia a largo plazo y que la estrategia debe estar sustentada en un conocimiento profundo de las implicaciones en la resistencia que cada insecticida candidato tiene y de la biología y ecología de las especies involucradas, y esta estrategia debe de hacer uso de todas las medidas de combate no químicas que estén disponibles.

THE UNION DEFENCE FORCES' BUILDINGS OF CAPE TOWN DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR 1939-45
W.M. Bisset
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/18-1-414
Abstract: Recently the Cape Provincial Institute of Architects has compiled and published catalogues of the buildings of Cape Town. There can be no doubt that the Second World War was the "finest hour" in the Mother City's history. The Cape Fortress Location List contains details of all the buildings and sites occupied by the Union Defence Forces and certain British units in the Cape Command during this hectic period. During the War the information was classified as secret. Only six copies of the Location List were made and they had been completed by 4 August 1944. The Location list was prepared by the 'Q' Section at the Castle and updated from time to time. Since the information concerning the units occupying the buildings in Cape Town may be of considerable interest to the Cape Provincial Institute of Architects, the National Monuments Council and others and has not been published before, it is provided below. There has also been great interest in the Table Bay Docks and its buildings so details concerning these have also been included.
The Saluting Battery at the Castle of Good Hope Cape Town 1910-1942
W.M. Bisset
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/20-4-353
Abstract: Although the guns of the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town never fired a shot in anger, they often fired salutes in honour of Royalty (the King's Birthday), visiting heads of state and warships, Union Day (a salute of 19 guns in 1931) and on other appropriate occasions. The subject of this article is the Saluting Battery on Katzenellenbogen Bastion at the Castle which was operational from about 1910 until about 1942. In 1912 the Castle was the only authorized saluting station in the Union of South Africa. The battery was manned by personnel of the Royal Garrison Artillery until it was taken over by South Africa in 1921.

SOUTH AFRICA AND THE WAR AGAINST JAPAN 1941-1945
W.M. Bisset
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/25-2-249
Abstract: Although South Africa was never attacked by Japan during the Second World War, the threat was considered to be so great that one of our most distinguished soldiers, Brigadier (later Major General) W.H. Evered Poole was recalled from the Western Desert on 26 May 1942 and appointed Fortress Commander at The Castle in Cape Town. South Africa's published Official Histories of the Second World War contain few details of South Africans who served in the Far East. Commander H.R. Gordon-Cumming's unpublished Official History of the SA Naval Forces in the Second World War 1939-1945 includes narratives of the two South African ships which served in the Far East, HMSAS BARBRAKE and HMSAS NATAL, and HMS TEVIOT and HMS SALVESTOR which were manned by the South African Naval Force (SANF).
