George's Story

(George* is pictured in the middle)

This month, with the release of the 2014 vintage of our Z-Force Shiraz Petit Sirah, we'd like to take the opportunity to share some stories about those involved with or associated in some way to the military, the Z Special Unit, and Legacy. We'd like to share these stories to increase awareness and appreciation of the experiences of those who have risked their lives to serve our country. 

George* (name protected for privacy) was a serviceman in the 3RAR (Third Royal Army Regiment) Battalion, based at the Woodside Army Barracks. He served there for six years.

He reminisces fondly of the gathering that he and his fellow serviceman from the Battalion had back in November 2015 – one of the largest ever gatherings they have had – which attracted 330 members to Hahndorf.

George and fellow members of the battalion served in conflicts such as the Vietnam War, as well as overseas postings to counries including Malaysia (George went here). Although the servicemen experienced adverse times, George reflects fondly of their reunion as it had been a long time since he had seen many of his fellow comrades since service ceased.
