  1. On behalf of the Class of Dec 76, well done gentlemen. It’s a great credit to those directly involved and its popularity is reflected in the speed with which the Fund were raised. Can’t wait to get back down there for closer inspection. On a related note, I was doing some research for the Virtual War Memorial Australia (on which any of our gradates with active service should be recorded – and once the Nominal Rolls are uploaded for all States later this year, you / they will be http://www.vwma.org.au ) when I discovered that three of the men named on our Memorial wall and on the statue were killed in the same incident in Vietnam – when a booby trap detonated among the Company Headquarters group of C Company 5th Battalion The Royal Australian Regiment. The Company Commander (Bourne) Company 2IC (Milligan) and the Forward Observer (Williams – NZ) were all OCS graduates albeit in different classes. That point was never made as far as I can recall when I was a Cadet.
