Locator’s Reunion October 2018

Fellow Locators,

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.

2017 Domestic and Overseas Commemorations

Mr Tehan said “As a nation we continue to honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have served in defence of our nation, It is incredibly moving to stand on a foreign field where Australians have fought and died for our values and reflect on the enormous debt we owe to the men and women who serve in our military. Many Australians will be planning overseas trips this year to attend a commemoration service and pay their respects and I encourage them to register early.”
