Join the Gunners for this worthy cause.

Monday 16th August 2021

The premier showcase of South African military history – the Ditsong National Museum of Military History in Johannesburg – will be on the receiving end of copious quantities of elbow grease from Military Veterans on Saturday 28th August 2021 in response to a call for help from the National President of the Gunners’ Association, Maj Gen RC Andersen (Rtd).

The call will see members of the three SA Air Force Association (SAAFA) Gauteng branches – East Rand, Johannesburg and Pretoria – add their sweat equity to that of the Gunner’s Association, the Armour Association and the Steel Helmet Shellhole to spit and polish the museum’s exhibits.

Veterans who would like to attend are to send a response the The National Secretary of the Gunners’ Association on the following e-mail address: with an indication of how many people will be in attendance. All are welcome, you may even bring along your family for a fun day at the museum.

Volunteers bearing the necessary cleaning materials are asked to report at the museum on the northern side of the Johannesburg Zoo at 09h00 for a four hour work session. When the job is done, as it were, the camaraderie of old soldiers will be rolled out at the MOTH Shellhole in nearby Parkhurst.

Please support this worthy cause. Normal Covid protocols will be maintained on the day.
