Royal Common Wealth League Boost Salone Ex-Servicemen

BY VIKTOR TUTU ROGERS

Sierra Leone Ex-Servicemen Association (SLESA) has through the British High Commission in Freetown expressed thanks and appreciations to the Royal Commonwealth League for donating a Toyota mini-bus with registration number ALP 971, to the Association.

At the British High Commission they were received by the British High Commissioner, the British Defence Adviser, Commander Derek and his Assistance, British Defence Adviser, Staff Sergeant Adrienne Levery.

The delegation which includes W.O. 1 Rtd. Sheku Kabba, the Accountant of the Association, Sgt. Sorie Sesay and Pessima Lamboi and veterans of the World War II was led by the Secretary General of the Association, Lt. Col. Fatorma Sannoh Gottor.  Speaking on behalf of the delegation, Sgt. Sorie Sesay said it would be very unfair if they failed to express their thanks and appreciation to the Royal Commonwealth League for the donation, adding that the donation was very timely as they always expect such opportunities to come their way.

In response, Commander Derek admonished them to take good care of the vehicle. He assured them of conveying their message of thanks and appreciation to the Royal Commonwealth League.

He advised them to continue updating them on their operations and he assured that the British High Commission would put mechanisms in place to give the Ex-Servicemen an annual support in the area of fuel support to upkeep the vehicle. This, he said, must be backed with a budget plan that should be submitted to the British High Commission.
