As proposed by Moth George van Zyl, it gives the Executive Committee great pleasure to award the Certificate of Comradeship to 23832 Moth Leon Michael Maree, a worthy recipient who has proven over an extended period of time that he is knowledgeable of the Way to Higher Comradeship.

George Mann turns 98 – 12 April 2021

Marshal Smuts Life Member, Moth George Mann celebrated his 98th birthday on Monday the 12th of April. A veteran of the Italian Campaign and a Covid-19 survivor, George was joined for the occasion by Shellhole Welfare Officer Moth Jimmy Gill. Tea and creamed scones were served and George is apparently quite sure that he will reach the milestone of 100 years; in his own words “only the good die young”
