Spokesperson to the Deputy President Ronnie Mamoepa said this year’s commemoration service is of particular significance.

Mamoepa said as one of the first South Africans and a member of the African Native Labour Corps to perish during World War 1 in France will be re-interment.

"It is our conviction that the commemoration service will go along way to the restoration of the dignity particularly of those black South Africans who participated in the war
