Commonwealth Gates Commemoration

Today a contingent of South Africans attended the Commonwealth Gates Commemoration.

We were 4 MOTHs and we joined the three South African Legion Members to remember all those who died in the service of the Commonwealth and the British Empire as it was.

This is what it is all about; veterans standing together and honouring those who died.

My thanks to the MOTHs who joined me- Douglas Winning (on his birthday, too!), Shaun Kennedy and Mike Doveton (not forgetting Russ Pearce who kept our table at the Rose and Crown!) and the SALUK members, Andrew Bergman (and his lovely wife), Russel Mattushek  and the ever faithful photographer, Theo Fernandes.

True Comradeship.
