The Australia Branch was formed in 1998 and is currently administered by a National Committee made up of members from all the States and Territories throughout Australia. It covers the whole of Australia and we now have over 240 members and growing monthly. Queensland ceased being a Branch in 2010 and in 2016 became a station along with all the other States.
The National Committee meets at least six times a year with meetings being held via Skype due to the size and time zones of Australia, normally on a Saturday morning. Annually, we hold three core functions: Annual General meeting which is usually in March (followed by a braai which could be in any Capital City), Annual Luncheons are held at various times between September and November in each State and various Christmas barbecueís in December, venues are notified to members. The Committee has recently decided to increase the number of informal social gatherings to provide greater interaction between members and families.
State Liaison Officers or Station Liaison Officers have been appointed in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT, South Australia Western Australia and Queensland.
In 2016, the Queensland Branch dissolved and the territory is recognised now as a 'station' with its own State Liaison Officer.
Members and prospective members (including former members of the Rhodesian forces and the Colonial Police) are welcome to attend any of our functions. They may also apply for membership of the Branch, either as a full or Associate Member, subject to satisfying our constitutional requirements.
