MEMBERS OF THE FORMER WOMEN’S ROYAL AUSTRALIAN ARMY CORPS GATHERED TOGETHER AT GEEBUNG RSL SATURDAY 20TH FEBRUARY TO CELEBRATE THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CORPS.
Despite the absorption of servicewomen into the mainstream other Corps in 1985 and its subsequent disbandment in keeping with new Govt policies; the old traditions, long remembered stories, continued practical jokes, and friendships were reminisced and renewed.//With the close proximity of International Women’s’ Day, a highlight of the luncheon was our guest speaker, Queensland Commissioner of Police, Katerina Carroll, APM. We were delighted to meet a most approachable and articulate woman with compassionate concerns for the crime issues in our state. It was interesting to ask questions about her earlier life; her development of a strong work ethic from childhood, and her continued quest for learning.
We had a most enjoyable day. For the Bribie girls a mellow, contemplative and subdued ride home in the bus, thanks to Sandy ZJ and the RSL Sub Branch.
A reminder to Current members and Ex Service Women; you are invited to join us at the RSL every Fourth Monday of the month for Laughter and Lunch. Any queries Joie 0404399493
