35 Squadron

I’ve tried to form a good and workable relationship with the new 35 Squadron  Beetle Bailey and René Halley are excellent Beetle is now discharged but hopefully he will keep us up-to-date with any happenings from 35 Squadron I am hoping some of the members join our Association I can recall when I was in the RAAF I never knew associations like ours existed but upon discharge and losing contact with   the comings and goings of Squadron’s it’s then you realize the importance of joining an Association such as ours there is one incident that comes to mind is Barry Ingrate email to me Barry at the time he sent this the email to me was housebound he sent an email thanking me for keeping him in touch with all the happenings and his ex-mates that he served with he said it felt like he was in touch with the outside world which to me is a good thing

38 Squadron Association

38 Squadron Association is up and running you can contact John Griffiths email dakota38@optusnet.com.au John will give you any information needed to join 38 Squadron mobile number 0418 161 303 I have also invited 38 Squadron every Anzac Day to join us at the Jade Buddha let’s hope we see them they are believe nine Squadron are attending the SAS function upstairs at the Jade Buddha and won’t be joining us as I believe two Squadron Association won’t be joining us because of all our members eating many years ago their food I must mention I was not a member of our Association then and did not eat two Squadron’s
