Not a political forum

The 61 Mech Veterans Association acknowledges the fact that the former SADF served the government of the time, in its capacity as an armed force. 61 Mechanised Battalion Group, likewise, served that government and was eventually dissolved in 2005 by the current government. We would like to point out that this site is strictly to bring together those who have served with 61 Mech, their next of kin and families, to share experiences and memories, and this is not a platform from which to voice political views.
