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.
The New South Wales Boys’ Group Air Activities Section in conjunction with the RAAFA Canterbury Bankstown Branch is pleased to announce that Flying Scholarships are to be made available again this year, with successful candidates to be announced at the Ceremonial Parade in Sydney on Sunday 20th May 2018.
Members of Victoria Group are invited to assist in the ANZAC Day Commemoration March, to be conducted on Wednesday 25 April 2018.
Members will assist through the carrying of banners. Additionally, Victoria Group will rejoin the end of the March and march towards the Shrine as the Australian Air League, alongside other youth organisations that have assisted on the day.
The NSW Premier’s 2018 Seniors Week Concert will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th April 2018.
