On Monday evening Gp.Comr. Trent Aylward of NSW Boys Group represented the Australian Air League, accepting an award on behalf of NSW Boys Group and NSW Girls cadets and Officers who carried banners and were medallion tray bearers at the 2017 Reserve Force Day Parade in Sydney, NSW.
On the evening it was announced that the 2018 Reserve Forces Day Parade will be the last – the Reserve Force Dat Council believe that after 20 years, with no current Reserve Units taking part and the average age of members marching over 80 that it is time to finish up.
For this reason we would ask that as many members as possible assist in this year’s parade, the attendees will also have the opportunity to have their photos taken on the steps of the Anzac Memorial and these will be archived by the Australian War Memorial for posterity. Details will be made available soon, and members who participate will be recognised toward the Community Awareness Award.
