Abstract

On 14 February 1992 there occurred the official opening of the Dan Pienaar Gun Park at the South African National Museum of Military History. The Gun Park is a newly completed exhibition area created by roofing and repairing the central courtyard between the exhibition's main halls. Lt Gen G L Meiring, SSA, SO, officially opened the Dan Pienaar Gun Park. The statue of Maj Gen D H ('Dan') Pienaar was officially unveiled by his widow (now Mrs Norma Seuffert). Maj Gen Pienaar's children, Fay, Barry and Nelia, were also present, in addition to a very wide representation of the Pienaar family.
