SA Legion Christmas Social Raises Funds

SA Legion Christmas Social Raises Funds

 

The SA Legionnaires and members of the 61 Mech Veteran Association held a joint Christmas party social in London. The “skouerskuur” was held at the Windsor Castle Pub (a period Victorian Pub) in Chelsea, London.

The evening was a resounding success with over £200 being raised by way of a raffle towards Royal Hospital Chelsea. The first prize was a South African food goodies basket

 

Additional prizes included a bottle of 10 year old whisky, movie tickets and books by the legendary WW2 South African Air Force (SAAF) fighter pilot Steve Stevens DFC*.

*He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his courageous flying in the Balkans. Later he flew many transport flights, ferrying military staff from Cairo to South Africa.
