Border War commemorative service and veteran military fair coming to Benoni


The MOTH Reveille Shellhole in Benoni will be the place to be on Sunday 18 August if you are a military collector or enthusiast as the MOTH Shellhole Dickie Fritz, in collaboration with the SA War Graves Society, hosts another Veterans Military Fair.

There will be a variety of stalls selling books, antiques, CDs, models and display memorabilia, in addition to a display of vintage military vehicles, classic cars, military equipment, and motorbikes.

A pipe band is set to entertain and Special Forces Lt Col Wynand du Toit and Recce Staff Sergeant Johan Raath will sign their books.

There will also be an annual border war commemorative service in remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country, with a wreath laying service from 10:30 am for 11:00 am.

Funds raised go to the SA War Graves Society for the restoration and maintenance of war graves and monuments in South Africa. Funds raised also go to support veterans in need.

There is no entry fee and gates open at 08:30 am.
