WA Reunion 1

WA Reunion 2

WA Reunion 3

WA Reunion 4

The  RAAMC  Old & Bolds WA  were out in force  with the Annual Reunion BBQ being held at the Area Sgt’s mess Karrakatta on Sunday 15 th Nov with a nice humid day  ensuring that many ales were consumed to not only quench the thirst but add substance to the past stories being  retold.
 
The  planned  attendance of our National Corp HON COL  John Taske  ensured our numbers would be up.   126 were in attendance which included again the currently run GRES Combat Medic’s course.   This  added that Uniformed flavour to the day and allowed our Old / Bolds to hear of the Training of the Medic’s within the system today .   One of our older gentleman in attendance had a mishap/fall during the afternoon and although he was okay,  the course members responded well thinking  it was a Medical Scenario that was part of their course.
 
A couple more formal aspects during speeches occurred with recognition of our Chef’s in Peter Houlis  and Gary Swadling who have voluntarily  given their services to our functions for the past 19 and 18 years respectively and  this was  acknowledged with a presentation gift  by all in attendance .( see attached  Photo )  Again thanks goes to Ian Meerilees our resident Trophy maker who does an outstanding job.  Mick  OSullivan  was also recognised in a similar  fashion for his contribution over 22 years and a couple of new faces in Annette Newell and Barry Campbell have shown an interest to coordinate the functions  for the  future .
 
The sad loss of one of our  own more recently in Ex Major Ron Sutton ( 4/9/09 ) was acknowledge with a quiet reflection as he had been a strong supporter of our gatherings in the past years and will be sadly  missed.   Five more  1 st Timers were welcomed onto the nominal roll and attended  this year .
 
  We had Interstate  visitors in  the retired  Eddie Bradshaw and Anneka  attend as they “ WINE “  their way around Australia  in the big flash Mobile home.   It was great to catch up with them and  even more so, when I kicked Eddie’s touché  on the Golf course a few days earlier but again his excuses were  many and varied ??
 
 Our  function for 2010 is planned for Sunday  14 th  November and  we would always be happy to host any of the  Corps  visitors who maybe in our   Sunny State of  WA.
