Locator’s Reunion October 2018

Fellow Locators,

After many successful reunions at Coffs Harbour, the next reunion will be sponsored by our SE Qld Branch. It’s planned to be held in conjunction with the Regiment hosting an Open Day for visiting Locator’s at Enoggera on Friday 12th Oct 18. We are seeking expressions of interest from members about attending the Open Day and preferred venue for the ‘Locator’s Dinner’, either after the Open Day on Friday 12th, or Saturday 13th.

 There are two possible very suitable venues for the dinner, both with varying accommodation/travel costs issues, Maroochydore RSL on the Sunshine Coast or Kedron Wavell RSL in Brisbane. Subject to possible DVA funding, the dinner will be approx. $65 per head.

So please check your diary and travel plans, looking forward to seeing you all and don’t forget when replying re attendance to indicate your preferred dinner date & venue.

Centenery of Armistice 2018

In November 2018, we commemorate the centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War (1914-18).

A creative public program at the Australian War Memorial will combine public activities, displays, installations and events for the five week period from 5 October to Remembrance Day, on 11 November 2018.

The centrepiece to the commemorations will be the installation of 62,000 knitted red poppy flowers on the Memorial's grounds. Each poppy represents an Australian life lost in the First World War, who are individually listed on the Memorial's Roll of Honour.
