    Same happened with the SA Navy. They celebrated 25 years of "The People's Navy". Any history prior to 1994 just never happened.

    2011 JMC 4X4 Double Cab 2.8 Turbo Diesel (Work Bakkie)

    Both the current navy, with it's two cargo ships, and the current Air force with it's few unmaintained craft, are truly not the same establishments as the previous. So...In my opinion, it is better to honor something as it was in history, than to celebrate it as part of the pathetic current circuses..

    The same happened with PUK / NWU end of last year.

    I understand university management did not allow any 150 year commemoration and did not even grant a 'nod' to it.
