I heard many stories about your brother, but never got to know him well. He was a legend in the unit. I well remember him asking me not to take a photo of him, a request I scrupulously followed. Please feel free to contact me via my website.
My brother was Koevoet - Peter Stassen
Read the book and it it a true portrayal of Koevoet as far as I know.
Peter was reticent about being photographed and he mentioned the name Jim Hooper often
I knew much about their activities from anecdotes Peter told me, and many were humurous.
Incidentally he was killed in a helicopter crash in 1997 in Chobe.
Anyway, one doesn't hear much about Koevoet anymore. It's rather dirty word now.
Peter was one of five people listed as persona non grata in Namibia in 1994'/5. Although he got his name removed from the list later he was blacklisted from doing charter work for the government.
