Gunners Day dinner 2022

To (belatedly) celebrate Gunners Day, Dame Cindy hosted a dinner for the Royal New Zealand Artillery Association at Government House Auckland. The RNZAA was formed in 1934 by World War I veterans, and continues as an advocacy group for New Zealand Gunners past and present.

During the dinner, Dame Cindy presented Lt Col (Rtd.) Tony McLeod with a pounamu, thanking him for his 11 years served as President of the RNZAA. Lt Col McLeod is no stranger to Government House, having served as aide-de-Camp to former Governor-General Sir Keith Holyoake back in the 70s.
