I would like to thank all those members and friends of the
Association who attended last Friday’s Sydney Anzac Day March. Despite the rain
I believe the day was a great success.
Also, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Gary
Smith and Bob Duggan for the initial concept/suggestion of having the Corps
Banner being paraded in the Sydney Anzac Day March to help celebrate the Unit’s
100 years on the Order of Battle.
From a situation in October last year where we were denied
the use of the Banner, to be able to have it paraded last Friday is due to the
outstanding efforts of WO2 Damien Lord the Training WO, 3 Transport Sqn to whom we are most
grateful. Also, a vote of thanks goes to our Patron, Col Michael Miller for all
his efforts with HOC Directorate in Canberra, OC 3 Transport, Major Errol Christian,
The Banner Party and members of 3 Transport Sqn and 176 AD Sqn for a
magnificent display in providing the Guard for the Princess Royal Banner.
As the Anzac Day March is transmitted to 32% of the viewing
public within the Asia Pacific Region by the ABC, the efforts of a few has
achieved good publicity for the Unit and the Corps.
