RV New Zealand 2012

The annual re-union of Rhodesian Services Association is held in October. This took place on Saturday, 20th October 2012. Then the next day, Sunday 21st October, a brunch was held at the Classic Flyers Museum (Tauranga / Mount Maunganui airport).

With this year being very special because this was the 10th successive RV + special re-dedication and Rolls of Honour for all the Umtali casualties, numbering some 37 members of the 4th (Manicaland) Battalion Rhodesia Regiment – accorded a due place of honour at the New Zealand 6th Hauraki Battalion HQ and Museum in Tauranga, New Zealand
