Les Booth (30 LAR) has kindly made a RAF 5 Pound Coin and Spitfire print as shown below available to raffle to raise funds.

"90th Anniversary of the RAF £5 coin" manufactured from 925/1000 sterling silver and proof finished stuck by the Royal Mint in Guernsey.

Along with that comes a "Defence of the Realm" print of the Supermarine Spitfire Mk IIa as it banks over the London skyline. The actual size of the print is 234mm x 183mm.

In addition Prop Geldenhuys has donated a copy of the Operation Miracle book that will form an integral part of the prize for one lucky winner - - to be drawn during the evening of the Unveiling of the Miracle Memorial on 3 October 2008 - in a mere six weeks time.

Cost of ticket is R10.00 each (South African Rand)

Cash payments to, or Nedbank deposits to P.M. GELDENHUYS, Account No 1349 086738, (Branch Code 134925 and or SWIFT Code NEDSZAJJ, if requested), together with Name with RAFFLE as reference, will qualify.
Ticket purchasers are requested to show proof of payments / deposits by e-mailing Prop at pey@lantic.net and / or phoning Durban 031-3066408 to confirm transactions. (Any other volunteers who would like to help run this Raffle will be more than welcome.)

Pledges are also most welcome - but remember, if not 'paid up' by the time the draw is made, then 'no draw!'

A special appeal is made to all our affiliated associations to please circulate this notification to their members and also to remind them that if they are able to attend the Unveiling at the Shamwari Club on 3 October 2008 that they are very welcome and their company would be appreciated. However, please advise Prop if you are attending so that the club can be notified of numbers attending (for catering purposes).

Note by Eddy Norris
I would like to mention that it would be greatly appreciated if overseas associations could offer suggestions as to how overseas folk could participate. I do believe that I saw Terry Bennett hand up to take charge of the UK folk. Thanks Terry?
Could the AFA Branches, BSAP, Army and School Associations please also pass on this notification to their members.
