The Vereeniging Branch held their year-end function on the 12th November 2022.
The meeting started off with the traditional 2 minute of silence, commemorating the sacrifice of members of the armed forces and of civilians in time of war as well as for Gunners Danie Muller and Gert Nel who both passed away in the last few months.
Our special guests on the day were Gnr Roy Andersen, Gnr Trevor and Riana Taute, Gnr Piet and Benita Langenhoven.
It was a great morning and not even a power failure outside of the load shedding schedule could dampen the spirit of the gunners.
Thank you to Gnr Roy, who was the guest speaker, for the feedback on the progress of projects of the Heritage Gun Restoration Committee.
Although the power failure prevented the show of photos, the presentation was well received with a lot of interest on the status of the “older” equipment.
Yolindi Stander and the Creative Talents team made sure all gunners and guest enjoyed the lunch which consisted of lamb and pork spit braai, Putu Pap and sauce, salads and pudding.
