Johannesburg Zoo Gun – Mini Maintenance Day
Oct 30 @ 09:00 - 12:00 SAST
The members of the Johannesburg Branch of the Gunners’ Association will gather at the site of the Johannesburg Zoo Gun, and perform some minor maintenance on the gun in preparation of handing the gun back to the City of Johannesburg.
Members are to meet at the main entrance of the Zoo at 09h00 on the 30th October 2021 and they will be escorted in to the Zoo.
The minor works to be done are:
- Clean and treat the wood of the wheels of the gun;
- Paint the steel rims of the wheels;
- fit the tampion to the barrel;
- clean and polish the bronze plaque; and
- clean the plinth and the surrounding area, including the chains and bollards.
Please bring along a few paint and some used cloths suitable for cleaning and polishing.
The Gunners’ association will provide the paint and thinners, as well as the polish to clean the bronze plaque.
Everyone is welcome to attend, and once finished we can pay our friends at the Steel Helmet Shellhole on Parkhurst a visit for a few beverages.
