In 1974 The Duke of Edinburgh took over as Grand President of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League from Lord Mountbatten and after 41 years at the helm of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League supporting Commonwealth Veterans around the world The Duke of Edinburgh handed over the “Kabonga” to me as I take up the role of Grand President and Keeper of the Kabonga, to keep order in meetings!

He was dined out in style by the Officers of the League today at the Army and Navy Club to mark his 41 years. Information on the Commonwealth Ex-Services League can be found at http://www.commonwealthveterans.org.uk/
