"Straightaway we headed for Waterloo with confidence that Waterloo may be out of enemy control. Unfortunately we got in the midst of Guinean troops. We fight for the whole day unto the night.
Logistics captured. RDF, six rockets RPG bombs with 6 TNTs, one box of mortar bombs."
Then it goes on, dates:
"6 January 1999. In the noon, whilst resting at Waterloo displaced and refugees camp, the deployed soldiers sent some civilians to us from the Guineans saying that they want to go to Guinea.
7 January 1999. 3 a.m. We launched attack on their position at Peninsula Secondary School Waterloo. This act gathered them from their deployment zone to the said secondary school. In the afternoon, the enemies communicated with us through letter that they doesn't want to fight any longer with us. Colonel Boston Flomo replied this letter to their high commands.
8 January 1999. 1 p.m. We attacked them again. In the noon, 3 p.m., Heavy and thick enemy convoy left from Port Loko bombarding whilst the Alpha Jet was flying over as special escort. 3.45 p.m., the convoy, including the deployed enemies that were at Waterloo, evacuated Waterloo back towards Port Loko axis. We embarrassed them and, with the panic in them, because we tried them everywhere, they left behind some logistics, 120 millimetre mortar gun, 40 barrel missile with some assorted rounds of AK rounds, G3, GMG, calibre, bombs. Indeed the capturing of surrendered soldiers is imminent also at Waterloo and more Benguema. We do capture materials almost every day. Casualties on the operation, overall operation at Waterloo, two killing in action, KIA, and around 15 wounded in action.
Date, 9 January 1999. We deployed at Hastings, we discovered enemies at Jui and Kosso Town earlier on their number was not much. From this said date until now, we every day attack the guys but the air raid is desperate on and we attack Jui and Kosso Town. However, the helicopter which landed every day at the point had reinforced the enemies with both armament and manpower.
Casualty on Jui operation, one killing in action, a good number of wounded in action."
Let's go to the second page, please:
"Date, 15 January 1999. It was agreed that the men in Freetown and the men at our point were to do joint operation on Jui and Kosso Town. The Freetown men were scheduled to attack Jui and we to attack Kosso Town that night. We attacked Kosso Town, clear the enemies, but the Freetown men never turn up, therefore the enemies with the support of the Alpha Jet drove us from Kosso Town.
Date, 18 January 1999. The Guinean troops from Port Loko entered vehemently at Waterloo with sporadic shelling and firing. In fact, two Alpha Jets escorted the troops consisting of five war tanks, two armoured cars, one 40 barrel missile and a series of AA one barrel and twin barrels. They occupied Waterloo from that evening on to the morning around 3 a.m.
Problems: For the main, while the only problems there at the front line are:
1: We have not yet connected physically with our brothers in Freetown.
2: Manpower indeed to be engaged on this urban warfare.
3: The strategic position of the enemies, mainly Port Loko, Lungi, Jui, Kabala area delaying our progress, these problems are to be looked into kindly and to find fast solution.
Suggestion: We suggested that as we are on urban guerrilla warfare that we use mainly artillery weapons, that we speedily recruit able and gallant men as population matters. All units to be active, especially at the front line, especially units like IDU, G5, G4, and S4."
Pausing there, Mr Sesay, IDU stands for what?
