A small commemoration event took place in a number of venues across the world, when crew, shipmates, family and others stood silent to remember the SAS President Kruger.

 

 

This occured not only in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg in South Africa, but also in Portsmouth, London, Nigeria, Atlanta, Boston, Paris, Cannes, Montreal, Tokyo, New Zealand, Australia, and various other locations around the globe.

 

 

At the Naval Memorial in Portsmouth, the token placed on the memorial also included the names of family members who requested this.
