VSC bus trip to Ron Coulton’s

This is to extend a big thank you for a wonderful relaxed coach tour to Ron Culton’s property yesterday. He put a great deal of effort in providing us all with a lovely day.
We started off with a cold drizzle of rain, but as the day progressed we had lovely sunshine. As we arrived Ron greeted us with his big smile and happy personality, a wonderful warm fire glowing in the heater.
We expected a sausage in a slice of bread but actually sat down to a full baked dinner of pork and lamb and several vegetables. Dessert, Apple pie and cream.
The sun started shining and we all went outside to play games. The companionship, frivolity, jokes, competition, added to a relaxed stress free day .
I found this event helped put my worries behind me, if only for a few hours, it was wonderful. Sun shining through a cloud.
Why other members do not support these events I do not understand. To be in mutual company, laughing, rather than home working etc, to me is TOPS.
Once again, THANK YOU.
Alan and Sandy Spencer (Members since 2012)

Repatriation of Remains

“The Director of the Office of Australian War Graves is currently arranging the repatriation of the remains of soldiers who were buried in Terandak Cemetery, Malaysia during the Vietnam War.

A number of 1 RAR soldiers are included in those to return and a repatriation ceremony will be held at RAAF Richmond later this year in early June. While the ceremony will be closed to the general public in accordance with contemporary ADF practices, there will be an opportunity for selected Vietnam veterans to be present at RAAF Richmond to observe the arrival and unloading of the aircraft as well as form a guard of honour as the hearses departs the Base.

There are significant administrative details to be completed prior to the occasion and if any VSC member wishes to attend the ceremony please contact office admin staff for precise requirements.”
