Stories of the war with Eric Wilson

April has crept up quick and now we’re only two weeks away from celebrating ANZAC Day and Poppy Day.

Make sure you and your family get along to one of the spectacular services held on Stockade Hill to commemorate the sacrifice of those who went to war for our freedom this year on April 25. Another one to mark in the diary is long-time Howick RSA member Eric Wilson’s presentation on his experiences during the war, starting at 5:30pm at
the Howick RSA on Thursday, April 20.

The 97-year-old will be showing some photos, and telling stories of his time in Greece, Crete, Egypt, Syria and Italy. He is being interviewed on the night, with a question and answer session to follow.

Invite your family, friends, and get along to the RSA on the 20th for this highly engaging and informative event.
