President’s Corner


The Association’s AGM was held on Wednesday, 26 August 2023, and after one false start due to not having the numbers to proceed we now have a new Committee and passed some constitutional changes to hopefully mean that future AGMs will always be able to proceed as planned.

You can see details of the new committee on the About page of the website.

BRIG John Keefe RFD remains our Patron, I thank John for his continued support and advice. The new website continues to receive compliments and I encourage everyone to enjoy the huge amount of history it contains. Our next body of work on the site is in getting Committee members trained in making updates, conducting maintenance and sorting through the 6000 plus photos to make these more organised and accessible.

Our Facebook page remains active with Jim’s quizzes and birthday notices a favourite!

Our ANZAC Day presence remains strong, and we continue to be joined by increasing numbers of serving members. I hope to see many of you again for the 2024 march. Remember- if you don’t march, who will?

The Annual Soldier’s Award for 2023 received nomination for three outstanding young soldiers and congratulations go to the runners-up GNR Nicholas Dimataga of 25 TP and GNR Kai Cen of 28 TP. The winner, GNR Ella Cleare of 113 TP received a certificate for a free weekend at the Army Resort “Bulwarra”, at Terrigal.

Finally, I would like to thank the Committee for its support and in particular, the input of JB as Association Secretary, without whom the Association would not run.

We now look forward our 2023 Annual Reunion and I hope to see you there.

UBIQUE. Stephen Flower President
