RAEME CMF/Reserve Reunion 2019

Another great year for the Reunion in 2019 with 55 people attending the annual event. With many friendships being renewed it was also encouraging to see new faces particularly ex Regular Army member establishing new relationships and enjoying the company of other RAEME members. Past members were remembered as one former Recovery Mechanic told me that Ian Finch, who recently passed away, had been his original mentor in that trade, Ian had been a regular attended for many years.

During the day members enjoyed the screening of the Trooping of the Colour ceremony for 2019 which is held in London on the Queen’s birthday each year. The “poms” certainly know how to put on the pomp and ceremony.

We had the honour this year to have as a special guest the Hon Col Comdt, Col Steve Evans who spoke of Corps events and current activities. Also present was the President of the Sherwood/Indooroopilly RSL Sub Branch, Glenn Mostyn, who welcomed all to the Sub-Branch and spoke of the Sub-Branch’s 100th Anniversary which is to be celebrated by a concert in September. All the photos are available in the Photo Gallery.

Another notable attendee was Brian Daley who has been a member of the Reunion Committee since its inception about 20 years ago. Brian is a tireless worker for RAEME and many other community organisations and for his efforts in these areas he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in this year’s honours list.

The raffles again were a highlight of the day. Chip Gorman who won first prize last year again won first prize this year. However, he re-donated the prize which was then won by a jubilant Geneve Hague. The prize was a handcrafted quilt donated by Mia Myler, wife of our treasurer.

This year we had 2 RAEME canes as prizes. One had been re-donated by Chip Gorman last years winner. The 2 winners were Bill Dixon and Bruce Hermann. Bruce as the RAEME Assoc merchandise member attends every year to sell RAEME memorabilia. Well another Reunion is concluded, and we look forward to next year.
