Armistice Dinner in Port Elizabeth

The Secretary’s in box had the following email from Graeme V Donald this week, he must have just read through the Minutes. He did express his regret at not being able to attend this years Reunion but sent this snippet that might be of interest.

It may be of interest for you to know that practically every year since 1919 we have held an armistice dinner in Port Elizabeth on 11th November, this year it will be at drill hall and I have been asked to give an after dinner talk on Victoria Cross awards which I look forward to, mostly dealing with RAF activity but just a mention of Charles Hazlitt Upham 2nd NZEF who was the only recipient of a double VC during WW2. I believe there have been only 7 recipients, 5 posthumous. C’est Le guerre.

Best regards, Graeme V Donald
