An invitation is extended to all current and past members of RAEME, and friends of RAEME, who live on the Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay area, or the surrounding region, including Brisbane, visitors to the area are also welcome.

The prime purpose of the gathering is to provide an opportunity for those of us lucky enough to live in this wonderful region to renew old friendships and meet newly retired ‘Bluebells’ who may have moved to SE Qld in recent years.  

In line with our traditions, we are proud to announce we have invited a current serving RAEME officer, with a distinguished record, LTCOL Liz Stephens, to address luncheon guests. Liz will talk about her career experiences to date, her recent position as CO of 1 RTB and her impressions of the young men and women passing through that important training institution. She may also have time to talk about her important work in Capability Acquisition and Support Group managing modern fleets of helicopters.

The current Colonel Commandant, Queensland, COL Tony Borg (Rtd), will host the lunch and report on the activities held in Canberra on ANZAC Day, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Army Apprentice School, Balcombe.  He will also bring us up to speed on the impending Corps Birthday (76th) luncheon to be held on 11 Nov 18 at the Port Office Hotel.
