About Us

We are a mixed bag of Sappers ... so says our Home Page! But there is more . . . . . .

How did we start?

RAE Shield
Vietnam Era Plaque.

We commenced some years ago, following a 2 Troop Reunion that all were invited to attend at Port Macquarie, NSW organised by Marcia & Harry LeBusque. Following that we have had reunions at Dubbo Memorial Services Club and in 2007, because of the huge numbers, at ‘Club Banora’ at Banora Point, NSW and Twin Towns Services Club (Coolangatta/Tweed Heads).

The Association has been incorporated in Queensland and complies with all the State requirements governing not-for-profit organisations.
