John great site, keep up the good work. Our Plaque is hanging proudly in the RSL Building at Orbost Vic. and everybody loves it.
[ Posted by Ray Cutler, October 03, 2011 9:15 PM ]
All this talk about a MOU with the former enemy being persued by the Nat. HQ RSL is a crock. The RSL in my opinion has lost the plot in respect of what its charter is, to look after all returned service persons and assist our current serving service people. I think that the current RSL chief's are only concerned with money that the Club's can generate and that the real purpose has been put on the back burner. As President of our local branch (Orbost Vic.) we feel that there are many more important things that the RSL should be doing for its members, not getting into bed with the Communist enemy.

My name is Kim Montgomery and I am Neville Gair's daughter.
I was wondering if anyone has any 103 Battery caps?
My brothers and sister would also like one as i wear my Dad's one frequently and it is commented on.
Dad says John Redman might still have some left.
PS my Dad sends his regards to all
[ Posted by Paul Hoskin, April 07, 2013 3:00 AM ]
I don't think my dad, Terence Anthony Hoskin has any caps but i will ask him. My hair stood up on the back of my neck when i saw you were Neville Gair's daughter as my dad has told me about him and served with him in 66 - 67. Would you mind asking Neville if he has any photos of my dad as he was absent in the group photo that was posted on here.

My name is Luke Scholes, I am currently conducting research for a possible documentary project based on Peter Dennis O'Neill who served with the 1RAR as a Gunner in Vietnam in 1968 (27/03/1968 - 14/08/1968). As some of you may know Peter sadly passed away two years ago. I am hoping to hear from anyone who knew Peter prior to, during, and after his time as a soldier in Vietnam. I am also seeking assistance to contact Peter's family members, particularly his niece Kimberly.
As some of you may know, later in life Peter documented his experiences in Vietnam through art. Peter's extraordinary body of work will be the focus of this documentary. His many paintings and drawings tell not only his story but that of his fellow soldiers from the 1RAR. The story of the 1RAR in Vietnam needs to be told by the soldiers who were there, and in Peter's sad absence it is those who remain that I need to hear from. I am particularly interested in speaking with soldiers who were involved in the Battle of Coral, which seems to be a conflict in Australian war history that lacks the exposure it deserves. Whilst it is difficult for me to confirm, it would seem that this battle was drawn upon for use in Peter's art. If you were involved in this particular conflict and you are interested in sharing your story I would like to hear from you.
Peter apparently gifted a number of paintings and drawings to mates of his he made in Vietnam. If anyone knows the whereabouts of any of Peter's artworks I would greatly appreciate your letting me know. I also need your assistance collating as much imagery as possible, whether it be photographs, footage, paperwork or anything else visual that I might be able to possibly include in this project.
I understand that it is difficult for many Veteranís to discuss and share their experiences. It is not my desire to upset any individuals or seek the involvement of anyone who is not interested in sharing their experience with me. I come to you in good faith, with a genuine desire to, with the upmost respect, gather information that has the potential to reflect part of the experience of Australian soldiers in Vietnam.
Please note that my research is in its very early stages. These projects take a very long time to develop. I currently have no funding and I am working alone, using my own funds to research this project. I welcome anyone who feels they may be able to contribute to write to me on the email address provided below. Please feel free to pass my message amongst your networks and on to anyone you think may be able to assist.
Thank you to all of you in advance,

I am trying to locate Graham Fitzgerald does anyone know where he is or know him?
I am putting an artical together for a Historian in Victoria & I am not sure if this Graham Fitzgerald belongs to our family or not & need to verify it to include him as on of 40 odd direct descendants to 4 greats ago Grand Mother. If I can prove he is a descendant it would be amazing that our family have so many who served from the Boar War to now. A few did not serve overseas,non the less they did their duty on the home front.
