President's Report 1988

Publication of “On Target” stimulated many observations and responses. It recorded the deeds of ordinary boys and men who did their best when extraordinary demands were made upon them.  

Incidentally we learned of what became of many of our mates in other Batteries or Sections over the years, and a little of those men who were captured.

Widows of our men who have passed on are better informed about their men. There is a proud record to leave for descendants who may become interested.

We have outreached to regain contact with old comrades, some of whom are interstate or overseas. In our remaining years, it is surely important to retain the contact between men who have a strong bond of service with our old Regiment, the first Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment to be formed in Australia for overseas service.

So we are resuming, after many years, a Newsletter. It will pass on stories which missed “On Target” but which should be recorded. It will rely on the readers for news items – of yourselves and of your old mates.

We look forward to seeing you at the Re-union and also at the March on ANZAC Day.

Jim Paton
