URGENT: MGTN pre-registration required with limit of 50 persons for Tue 30th July
latest by Fri 26th


Further to the following message (slightly revised)that we emailed 
individually last week to all present & past members with email 
addresses on our record, please note that our CEG has decided that prior 
REGISTRATION in advance for MGTN by EMAIL(in the format specified & to 
the 2 addresses set forth in the 3rd cum last paragraph of this 
supplemental letter), is now REQUlRED so that they can plan accordingly.
For the 6-8pm Chit-Chat Session ("CCS"=酒鬼会)taking place in our 
Clubhouse, being somewhat longer in duration than a typical cocktail 
reception, it is intended that there will be seating for most attendees 
while encouraging constant moving around. Hence, in light of the seating 
capacity of our Club- house, participation each time will be limited to 
50 persons on a first-come (i.e., registering by email as per 
below)first-accepted basis.


Please note too that the timing of the receipt of the aforesaid 
pre-registration,  will also be the priority basis for allocating the 
$20 cash-coupon per person to the 1st 25 persons. Such prior 
registration should be completed latest by Friday 26 (with 
acknowledgement to be emailed back within 2 days).  Intending attendees 
should email to clubmanager @rhkr.org with copy to frankmiu@hotmail.com 
the following information:


(a)Participating session(CCS or BCS or both),(b)Family name,(c)Given 
name,(d)Sex,(e)Age(optional for female),(f)Last RHKR Sqn affiliation (if 
any,otherwise state "Associate"),(g)Latest occupation (add "Retired" 
before the last occupation if appropriate).

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Dear members,

 

(1) Please note that, on a trial basis for the coming 3 months of July- 
September, a VA-wide Monthly Get-Together Night ("MGTN"=吹水夜) will be 
held by our Clubhouse Enlivening Group ("CEG") starting with Tue 30th 
July, followed by 3rd Tue of next 2 months (being 20th Aug & 17th Sep., 
respectively).  All members, whether regular or associate, and of 
whatever squadron formerly or other affiliation, are welcome to come 
meet old & new friends!
There will be no admission charges for MGTN., which will consist of a 
Chit-Chat Session ("CCS"=酒鬼会) from 6-8pm with drinks & snacks in our
Clubhouse at the typically favorable standard Clubhouse prices at one's 
own expense on cash basis, and an optional Big-Chow Session ("BCS"=大食会) 
from 8:30pm onwards in a nearby eatery on a cost-sharing basis.


(2) For the 1st occasion on 30th July, at the courtesy of SW Wong of A 
Sqn, each of the first 25 attendees will be given a $20 cash-coupon 
(good for various snacks, 2 soft drinks, 1 beer or part of 1 cocktail) 
for use at the bar on-site that night. For that and all ensuing 
occasions. the leader of our CEG, along with one or more other 
member(s)of that Group, will be there to greet & chat with all comers, 
for comradeship, reminiscence & what have you, so that there should be 
no concern of not having anyone on site to talk to (which some of our VA 
members have complained about their occasional visits to the Clubhouse). 
In particular, they would like to hear about other ideas for enlivening 
our Clubhouse, as well as any suggestions about our VA which they can 
help convey to our Board of Directors.


(3) Moreover, do note that the existing 5 members of CEG include a 
retired American lawyer cum CPA cum business consultant, a former civil 
engineer with a wide-ranging contracting experience, a provider of 
assorted supplies to disciplinary units in HK & elsewhere, an expert in 
a certain sector of education and, last but not the least, a 30-year old 
associate member who is active in the consulate circle in HK, flies 
frequently to Beijing & UK for horse-hockey games as well as war-games 
in exotic places such as Russia.
That last person has also provided on loan a sorely missing airsoft SLR 
to our collection of similar replicas of classic personal firearms. That 
collection,now totaling 31 of perhaps the most classic 38 or so for the 
past 180 years(incl the 3 used by RHKR & its predecessor from 
1954-1995,namely,SLR & SMG & BHP-35 pistol),is permanently displayed on 
wall-racks in the remote corner of our Clubhouse facing the racecourse 
though often overlooked by visitors). The CEG members on site would all 
be happy to share their knowledge of that collection as well as their
life story with whoever caring to do so with them on MGTN.


(4) The aforesaid 5 members of CEG consist of only those from A & C Sqn 
as well as 2 associate members. It is hoped that there will soon be also 
ones from other squadrons or walks of life volunteering as they do to 
join them in that Group, esp those of the former Women's Troop and 
former Auxiliary Air Force who qualify as our regular full members too, 
as well as those of the Police Force who constitute a significant 
portion of our associate membership.
On top of the foregoing appeal for broader representation in the CEG, we 
also appeal here for more sponsorship of MGTN, just as SW Wong has 
offered above, in the form of cash, food items or things for use as door 
prizes or in lucky draws etc. Those interested in responding to these 
appeals are welcome to contact the Clubhouse Manager at 
clubhousemanager@rhkr.org, with copy to frankmiu@hotmail.com.

Mr John MacKenzie - Chevalier de L'Ordre national de la Legion d'honneur

Dear Members,

We have received a message from Mrs Marian MacKenzie, informing us that her husband, Mr John MacKenzie, has been appointed to the rank of 'Chevalier de L'Ordre national de la Legion d'honneur' by H.E. the President of France. Mr John MacKenzie (now 89) joined the Army at Perth (Scotland) on his 18th Birthday and was engaged in infantry training on D-day 1944, completing this in December that year. In convoy from Tilbury in January, 1945 he was rescued when his troopship (HM-LST415) was torpedoed in the North Sea. He joined the 5/7th. Bn. Gordon Highlanders in Holland at Gennep, Reichswald Forest in February, 1945 and saw further action at Goch (Siegfried Line), the Rhine Crossing at Rees, and through northern Germany to Bremen and Bremerhaven where he marched in the Victory Parade of the 51st Highland Division on 12th. May, 1945. Post WW2 he served with the 2nd. Bn. Gordon Highlanders in Libya in 1946, received a commission in the Royal Artillery in 1947, and was demobilised in 1948. He joined the Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) in October 1954 and was re-commissioned in Hong Kong following the Korean Emergency and served with Royal Hong Kong Defence Force from 1954 until 1964, retiring with the rank of Captain, as O.C. Mortar Platoon. Mr John MacKenzie was a President of the Jaycees (1959) and of the Hong Kong Rotary Club (1975-76). He also served on the Hong Kong Urban Council from 1971 to 1980, and as a Justice of the Peace from 1973 to 1991.

The Secretary


The Volunteer Association is the successor to the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) following the disbandment of the Regiment on 3rd September 1995. All Volunteers who were members of the Regiment, the RHKVDC or the RHKAAF irrespective of rank are eligible to join. The Association has been granted a Club House in the Happy Valley Stand at the Jockey Club in Happy Valley. In this Club House there is a lounge and bar area where members meet.

The Association has been granted charitable status and it is run by a Board of Directors. The Board meets regularly to give policy direction to the affairs of the Association. A Club House Manager is responsible for the day to day running of the Association Rooms and is a point of contact with the Association.

 

The Association is also an umbrella organization for all other related clubs such as the Volunteer Shooting Club and the Volunteer Orienteering Club. These clubs run their own affairs charging a membership fee and annual subscriptions if they so elect.
