Hi All

Registrations are still comming in and that is fine to see. You learn a few things reading the registrations forms, like Tony Handcock missed his calling, his handwriting is bad enough for him to be a doctor and Blanchie must think we are mind readers, but it's all in good fun.

A few of us are off to Canberra this week for the RAASC Plaque Dedication at the AWM. This will be a good chance to catch up and have a few beers. We will post a report on it along with some photos.

On the sad side, we are sorry to hear the news of the passing of Kaye Ciracovitch's Mother. Our thoughs are with you Kaye and we look forward to sharing happier times with you.

Just a reminder that a few of us will be marching on ANZAC Day in Brisbane, if you wish to join in please contact us at: and I will let you know where we will be meeting.
