Take Post – Saint Barbara’s Day Greetings
The Artillery Club’s Committee extends best wishes to all serving and retired Gunner Officers both at home and overseas, and those colleagues who value our support, on the occasion of Saint Barbara’s Day – 04 December 2020, Patron Saint of the Artillery Corps worldwide.
On Saint Barbara’s Day, as Gunners let us pause and celebrate the Artillery Corps professional excellence, unique legacy, distinctive traditions, steadfast camaraderie, and admirable Esprit de Corps – vital elements of the moral component of artillery capabilities.
This year’s Saint Barbara’s Day Greetings Card is based on a photograph taken during the rededication of the Saint Barbara’s Statue, located in the Artillery School, in December 2019.
The School Commandant and Regimental Commanders are requested to post the Artillery Club’s Saint Barbara’s Day Greetings on IKON, and to circulate it to all Permanent Defence Force and Army Reserve Gunner Officers under their command.
Stand Easy – Club’s Activities
This year’s Saint Barbara’s Day activities will be somewhat redesigned within the Artillery Community in order to protect the Corps. Likewise, the Government’s restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic has completely curtailed the Artillery Club’s activities.
Keep Protected, Keep Well and Keep Connected.
As outlined in Newsletter 3/2020, circulated on 27 November, following an assessment of the evolving Covid-19 situation, and prevailing Government advice, the Club’s responsibilities for its members, regretfully, the Club’s Committee has cancelled the 2020 Annual General Meeting and the associated St Barbara’s Day Lunch, both scheduled for today, 04 December.
Once a Gunner Always a Gunner.
