Killara Estate Winter Bus Trip! What a great trip we had on the coach from the Berwick RSL up to Seville East to the Italian Winery. Wine tasting, lovely Italian food on platters to share and a big warm fire blazing. This bus trip was our largest with 47 people on board. (see us all on the one very long table.) After lunch when back on the bus there was a joke competition, they were all very funny but Stevi (bonza) took out the prize with a very funny rather risqué joke. The applause meter put him over the line. A great day had by all, unfortunately the breathtaking views were not on show due to the rain and fog! Typical Melbourne Winter Weather. A great day with great mates! Thanks Andy you are the best (driver!) ... See MoreSee Less
Today we bow our heads in memory of Commando Section Commander SGT Todd Langley, who lost his life in a raid on an insurgent hideout during operations in Afghanistan on 4 July 2011. It was his seventh operational deployment. Thank you for your service and for paying the ultimate price for our freedom, Todd. Lest we forget. ... See MoreSee Less
“What can I tell you about me, cobber? I’m a bear that was born to join the Army. I skipped the nursery and volunteered to join the Royal Australian Infantry! I’m a larrikin who can make the uniform look like a tux. I'm a good sport, never short on a joke, but always ready to get the job done. I'm the section scout, whatever the challenge, I grin and bear it 😉 I’m not too keen on drill and ceremonial stuff, but here we go again…Quick March!"
