There will be a 60th Reunion for the OCS Class of June 63 held at Rye during the 14th and 15th of June 2023. Details are as follows:

Accommodation at Rye Hotel.  Phone Kera Zaltsberg on 0411732332.

Assemble at Rye RSL Wednesday 14th June 1630 to 1830 hrs for drinks, then informal dinner there.

Late am Thursday 15th June visit Portsea and lay wreath at statue. Wander around.

Dinner 15th June 1900 for 1930 hrs at Rye Hotel. Dress informal. Medals optional.

Disperse am Friday 16th June 2023.

Garry Swan has prepared a 20 minute address to be presented at the dinner Thursday night. It covers many humorous anecdotes on both Cadets and Staff during the course and deals with some of our careers and activities post OCS. He has called the address ‘Memories of an Officer Cadet in the early sixties’. We would really enjoy seeing our classmates again as this may well be our final reunion.

1973 – 50th Anniversary

The two classes to graduate in 1973 are having a reunion in New Zealand combining with the New Zealand OCTU. The full details are in this document.

There is a reunion planned for the June 1973 class in October. See more details here.

1983 – 40th Anniversary
OCS Class of June 1983

Friday 9th June (King’s Birthday weekend) is the date at Merricks North. More details to follow. Keep an eye on the OCS Facebook page.

Some more details:

Friday 9 June night at a classy and quiet venue in the CBD – not a noisy bar.
Saturday 10 June at 1300 hr – RV at the Quarantine Station for the nostalgia walk around – needs to be coordinated with the Victoria Parks people
Saturday 10 June approx 1600 hr – move to Portsea Hotel for drinks – free format
Saturday 10 June 1900 hr – move to dinner at Rye RSL – this is something that Ash has found out and is following up. Has the advantage of proximity to accommodation. Alternative would be Portsea hotel annex.
Sunday 11 June 0800 – brunch at Buckley’s 174 Ocean Rd Sorrento. I have made an online booking for 12 as a placeholder.
