RAAF Association Tasmania

ANZAC DAY MARCH 2021

This year, being ther Centenary of ther RAAF, Air Force has been given the privilege of leading the ANZAC Day marches around the country 

Here in Hobart we will assemble outside the old Supreme Court building in Macquarie Street at 10.15am, and take our place and march off as directed by the Parade Marshal.

Dress for members marching will be RAAF 1A Uniform with Medals, jacket and tie and full size medals. There  will be the usual BBQ at the RAAF Memorial Centre after the march.

If you would like to join us be sure to contact ther State Secretary who will be able to register you for ther march.

Let us have a really good roll up for this occasion. I don't think too many of us will be here for the RAAF 200th Anniversary.

ANZAC DAY AT THE RAAF MEMORIAL CENTRE

The RAAF Memorial Centre will open at 0930 hrs on Sunday 25 April so that members who are not able to march may watch the event  on TV over a coffee and some biscuits.

Following the Parade, we will have a BBQ back in the Memorial Centre at about 12 noon.

As this is the Centenary of the RAAF we want a really good roll up of members to make the occasion memorable.
