About Sidney Robey Leibbrandt

This man was well known as the Nazi agent in SA during the 2nd World War. This part of the history can be read in Hans Strydom's book "The Fourth Reich". He went to school at Greys College where he for a dare jumped out of a second floor window for a "tickey". The second jump for a "sixpence" ended in a broken leg. Never a man of learning but brave and strong beyond belief.

He won a silver medal for boxing at the Olympic Games of 1936 in the light-heavyweight division. In the bout for gold, he fought on fearlessly with a broken hand but lost the match. After returning to SA he turned professional and won the heavyweight division.

He was caught as a Nazi agent and sentenced to death subsequently to be commuted to life in prison with hard labout. He was released in 1948 when the Nationalist government came to power. Note his son Izan is Nazi spelt backwards. Robey's mother Susan Marugarite Joyce was a cousin of William Joyce (lord Haw-Haw) of Nazi radio fame during the 1939-1945 World War.
