ANZAC Day 2019

25 April 2019 marked the 104th anniversary of the landing of Anzac troops at Gallipoli. The Brisbane March was held to commemorate ANZAC Day and was well attended by over 150 RAEME Members.

We were very privileged and honoured to have RAQ Life Member and Chairman's Award Recipient Maurie Maunsell attend to lead our banner, behind RAQ Secretary COL Tony Borg and Hon COL COMDT COL Steve Evans. Maurie who turned 96 this year was a founding member of the Corps, enlisting on 8 Dec 1941 and served in 116 AUST BDE WKSPS achieving the rank of Corporal.  

Also a big shout out to the hosts of the ANZAC Day March on the ABC Craig Zonka, Allan Callaghan, and MAJ Richard Thapthimthong, for doing a great job announcing each of the Army groups this year.

After the parade the Association hosted our post-march gathering at a new temporary venue this year, Fridays' Riverside. Again we had well over 175 members and guests attend, in what is traditionally our biggest event of the year.

The new surroundings, which were very spacious and Friday's Manager Owen very graciously shouted everyone their first drink, which was very welcome for all those who attended. Lunch was catered for 150 guests, who were able to mingle and be seated across the venue, making for a very relaxing and enjoyable afternoon catching up with fellow members and guests. 

The event wrapped up around 1800hrs, which was also a little later than planned. A big thank you to Friday's staff, who did a great job catering for the needs of a number of "BlueBells".

We want to specifically thank Manager Owen, with help from Functions Coordinator Paige. Last but not least our ever reliable Committee who always turn up, making sure the day ran smoothly, contributing to the success of the day.

We have a number of photos taken on the day and can be viewed at the ANZAC Day 2019 Gallery Link.
