Ron Pilborough advises, with regret, the death of Greg McManus
on 24 August 2011 in Aukland, New Zealand. Although Greg was
not a former member of the BSA Police (he was in fact a member
of the Northern Rhodesia Police), he did serve for many years
as the Hon Secretary and Treasurer of the New Zealand Branch
of the Regimental Association, of which he was an Associate
Member. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family
and friends, to whom we extend our deepest sympathy.

|Annual General Meeting
The Branch holds two functions annually, the first being
the Annual General Meeting in May and the second the Christmas
Luncheon at the end of November. For many years, both of these
functions have been held at the Silverdale RSA just north
of Auckland and are well supported considering this is a small
Branch. On occasion branch members are hosted by committee
members in Cambridge which affords the opportunity for those
"out of town" members to enjoy good BSAP company.

The New Zealand Branch produces one Outpost annually which
is published in time for the AGM in May. We endevour to generate
New Zealand based content where we can but welcome input from
our other International branches. We also produce an informal

times a year which is for local usage and is an effective
and quick method of communicating with our members. Content
is mainly of Branch interest and business.
