For the members interest.
The Moth Museum isnt about small flying insects. It is The MEMORABLE ORDER OF TIN HATS. Its akin to the British Legion, an organisation for ex service men. It was virtually on the verge of extinction some time ago as its constitution only allowed members who fought in the World Wars.
It was expanded in the not to distant past to include servicemen who had fought on active service for the Republic.This really ment fighting in the bush war in Angola. That being the last active service for the SADF.

Regards
