Die volgende berig was geskryf deur Ané Roux (Caxton):

Braaivleis, potjieskos, souskluitjies, koeksisters, stokbrood, tuisgemaakte konfyt en vele tradisionele gunstelinge om die mond te laat water.

Dan is daar volkspele, boeresport, n boereorkes en n aanloklike antiekmark ook.

Die bestuur by die Voortrekkermonument staan behoorlik reg om Pretorianers te verwelkom met n dag propvol aktiwiteite ter viering van die 175ste herdenking van die Groot Trek, toepaslik op 24 September tydens Nasionale Erfenisdag.

'n Afrikanerkultuurfees met boeremusiek, tradisionele demonstrasies, boeresport, smul lekkernye en die gewilde antiekmark sowel as lekker vermaak gaan van hierdie erfenisdag 'n puik gesinsdag maak.

Die Groot Trek herdenking word gevier in samewerking met Rekord en Afriforum wat Afrikaners en ons geskiedenis op Nasionale Erfenisdag saam met Pretorianers wil vier.

Die feesviering herdenk die uittog van meer as 20 000 pioniers uit die destydse Kaapkolonie na die onbekende binneland, 'n trek opsoek na vryheid en onafhanklikheid wat uiteindelik gelei het tot die ontstaan van die Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek en die Republiek van die Oranje Vrystaat.

Pretorianers word genooi om saam vir die naam Pretoria te kom braai by die Monument en terselfdertyd hul erfenis as Afrikaners te vier.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
