South African Arms and Armour Society (SAAAS)

Meetings, workshops and social events are held in the Auditorium at the South Mrican National Museum of Military History, Erlswold Way, Saxonwold, Johannesburg, and commence at 16.30 for 17.00. Events fees are RIO for members and R25 for non-members (inclusive of tea/coffee served at interval). Social evenings comprise the screening of documentaries or feature films, lecture presentations, and discussions of topics which are closely related to arms and armour, warfare and relevant historical events. Edged weapons, antique and fine sporting firearms collectors, as well as individuals and organisations which share a keen academic or cultural interest in arms and armour are cordially invited to join SAAAS without any special qualification as to their collector's status. Collectors of modern military and other firearms wishing to join SAAAS may be requested to demonstrate their 'bona fide' status as firearm collectors. After the meetings and workshops, an identification/evaluation of condition service is offered, whereby 'collectable' arms and armour are submitted for examination. This service is offered free of charge to members and non-members by prior arrangement only. Arms - refers to all arms from prehistory to the present day, and to associated projectiles. Armour - refers to all types of armour, from prehistory to the present day (excluding modern bulletproof vests). Collectable arms and armour - refers to all arms and armour of commemorative, cultural, historical, technological, thematic or investment significance.

Membership fees are R120 per annum and the Society's financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June. For more information about SAAAS, please contact Dawn Harvey, Tel: (011) 4871704, or email: arms _and _
