The Society started in 1947 with a membership of about 12, this was mainly due to the efforts of Mr Edw. Lauder
The Society circulated articles and information by means of a Newsletter and with an increase in membership they became more frequent
Finally with a membership close to 100, a Journal was a necessity - In January 1953 The Springbok was born and has been going ever since
