  • Hi,

  • Yesterday, I represented the Hamilton RSA at the funeral of Michael Terence MOORE who served in the British Army during WWII - 1837097 Sgt 23rd RATR and in the New Zealand Army  36157 Sgt 4th Mdm Regt RNZA.   93 year-old Mike redeployed to the gun-line above on 1st April 2012.

  • Greetings All,

    Is there anyone out there, Vietnam Vet., who is planning to travel to Vietnam for the ANZAC Day Service at Long Tan ?   This info is required on the chance that there could be a meeting of Vets and crew from the Te MANA, which will be in Ho Chi Minh City for ANZAC Day.

    Ever wondered what is in the hidden tunnels in North Head? What happened to the original Boeing aeroplanes? What was the “Kaskowiski”? Who was “Ali Barber”?
