The Gunners’ Memorial Parade was held in the Company’s Gardens on Sunday 11 March 2018. Major Stephen John Brimacombe laid a cross at the foot of the artillery memorial in the Gardens, on behalf of the Cape Town Rifles (Dukes).

The functionary was Alderman Ian Neilson, Deputy Executive Mayor of the City of Cape Town. Padre Tony Bethke delivered a stirring sermon. Music was provided by the SA Army Band Cape Town, with Pipe Major Tony Reis piping the Lament during the laying of the wreaths. Cape Field Artillery delivered a ground-shaking salvo during the Two Minutes’ Silence.
