Introduction The inaugural meeting of the Western Cape Branch of the Association was held at the Tulbagh Hotel, Cape Town on 26 June 1969. Twenty one former members of the Force attended.
Over the years various venues were used for the monthly gatherings. On 2 February 1987 the Association was privileged to be granted permission by the International Police Association, Western Cape to use their “home” at Timour Hall Villa, Timour Hall Road, Plumstead, Cape Town for our social meetings.

Informal Functions Our monthly gatherings are held on the first Monday of every month at Timour Hall. When the first Monday falls on a public holiday the meeting is postponed until the following (or second) Monday. The meetings usually begin at 18h00 but early arrivals start gathering from about 17h00 onwards.
Apart from our Monthly get togethers, the association organises two other events during the year. In September we hold our formal Annual Regimental Dinner and we round the year off with our very popular Christmas Spit Braai.
Members and their wives/partners and guests are cordially invited to join us at all of the above functions.
