Dear Fellow Gunners
It is with great sadness that we inform you all of the passing of Maj Gen Phil Pretorius SD SM MMM, who was the National President of the Gunners’ Association from 1988 until 2011 and was appointed as an Honorary Life President of the Gunners’ Association on his retirement.
Gunner Pretorius was recently awarded the Nonagenarian Certificate and was a true and loyal Gunner who gave so much to the Gunners’ Association.
He will be sorely missed by all of the members of the Gunners’ Association.
It is anticipated that a memorial service for Maj Gen Pretorius will be held in August 2021, when his daughters join his son in South Africa. Gunners will be kept informed.
May his dear soul Rest in Peace.
“Well shot, End of Fire Mission, Stand Down, Rest”
Gunner N. Wiid
National Chairman
