Veterans gathering again: NMBVA at the Avoca Hotel
Posted on: Mon 6 Jul 2020
As Veteran groups emerge carefully from home isolation, the Malaya & Borneo Veterans Association SA/NT met up at the RSL’s Avoca Hotel for their first meeting in many months. They give us some comments about the Government handling of the Covid-19 situation; being able to get together again; and advance advice about a 2021 special 55th Anniversary reunion in Sarawak.
