Ever since the end of World War II various districts have held Div. Cav. reunions; a National Reunion is also held every two years. A few years ago the idea of a New Zealand Association was mooted, and at successive national reunions representatives from various districts have met and gradually formulated the following pattern:
That National Reunions be held at two-yearly intervals, if possible in rotation between the three main districts, Northern, Southern and Central.
That the districts be centred as under:
That at each reunion the Association's Executive should meet and decide date and place for the next reunion two years hence.
That the Executive of the current reunion and the Executive of the next reunion be the executive to cover the two years between reunions.
All members are encouraged to put forward their ideas and ask ques- tions for discussion at the next Executive meeting.
This can be done by contacting your District Secretary.
The issue of this History gives us our first chance to do three important things:
To tell you of the formation of the Association.
To get a full list of names and addresses through the War History Branch.
To tell you where your nearest District Secretary lives.
You will hear more fully from us when we have the lists complete and we will endeavour to tell you what district you come under.
