Colonel Enrique Kindelan, Cuban military, naval and air attache in Luanda, told Prensa Latina that the pieces come from the Museum of the Revolution in Havana, one of the major institutions in his country due to the amount and nature of the collections it houses there.

According to him, the donation includes personal items by Cuban combatants in Angola, prizes from sports competitions in those times, coins, compass, binoculars, handwritten notes and a document addressed to Fidel Castro with the signature of several officers.

The collection also includes war trophies and an aerial photogrammetric survey chart, said Kindelan, who considered the gesture as “a modest contribution to safeguard the historical memory of our two countries.”

Prensa Latina had the opportunity to see how those objects were placed in one of the rooms of the National Museum of Military History, prior to its inauguration this December 2, on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the founding of Cuba’s Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR).
