The BAT Centre is housed in the premises of what was formerly the longest serving naval volunteer unit in the world.

BATís Democratic Gallery is currently hosting the SAS Inkonkoni Commemorative Exhibition which includes photographs and memorabilia detailing the 120-year history of the SAS Inkonkoni which started in Durban in 1885 as the Natal Naval Volunteers. They later became the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves and the SAS Inkonkoni.

The exhibition will include details of the history of the unit, the meeting that prompted the formation of the unit, the camps and drills, various battles and wars that the units was involved in. Other highlights that are shown include the Freedom of the City and the Centenary Celebrations from 1985. The main theme of the exhibition will be on examining the contribution this unique naval unit has made to the history of Durban and the people of South Africa. The officers of the unit have been involved in this exhibition and South African Navy officials and the South African Army band will be attending the event. There is no charge involved in attending the event. Snacks will be provided and a cash bar will be available.

The exhibition runs until June 5. More information from Kirsten on 031 332 0451.
