Aware, Alert and Alive
by Val Orange
Personal Safety was the theme of the August meeting with Jeanette Moser sharing her tips and demonstrating techniques to make us Aware, Alert, and Alive! A lively and passionate lady in her 80th year, Jeanette was accompanied by her husband Alan who along with volunteers from the members helped her during her talk to actively illustrate moves to defend ones-self if the need ever arose.
Drawing on experiences from her childhood and her later service in the South African and the then Rhodesian Police forces. which was uncommon at the time for a female to undertake, Jeanette related incidences from her extraordinary career, through community policing to expanding her skills as a trainer while part of Special Branch during Apartheid and beyond. An enthusiastic, straight talking women Jeanette provided an animated dialogue enjoyed with and by all present.
