As you would be
aware the 4RAR Association Qld was the only association operating in Australia
until recently and we attempted to maintain a relationship with all members
throughout Australia and overseas. I am in the process of handing over the
individual State nominal rolls to those of our brother 4RAR Associations, those
that are operating and those in the process of being established. So far, I have
passed the nominal rolls to SA, VIC and NSW. What this will mean in the future,
is that state memberships will become the responsibility of individual state
associations and so it should be.
QLD in the meantime, is still maintaining the membership of those members in WA,
NT, TAS and overseas. We will continue to mail and Email our newsletter, `The
Fighting Fourth', to those members and to pass relevant information. We will
also Email The Fighting Fourth to all those for whom we have Email addresses. We
desperately require your Email addresses in order to maintain better lines of
communication, to distribute `The Fighting Fourth', to send routine information,
to send immediate information, to notify of illness, and unfortunately, to
notify of funerals.
Please inform us of change of address, telephone and email. If you contact an ex
member who has not received a newsletter recently or who has not had contact
with us please pass either our details to them, or their details to us.
The latest report from the front in Afghanistan (The Sandpit) indicates that all
is well, although as you would understand, we are not privy to operational
D Company has been raised in 4RAR (Cdo) and the OC is looking for memorabilia,
photos, flags, etc that can be displayed within the company to continue the
history and the traditions of the `Road Runners". If you have any that you may
wish to donate, then please send them to me and I will pass them on to OC Delta
with your name and details attached for acknowledgement.
The Battalion is also looking for photographs and stories about our boxers and
boxing coaches from 1964 to the unlinking and photographs of previous RSMs and

photos etc from 1964 to delinking, including 2/4RAR to add to the battalions
history. All photos, letters etc will be returned after copying.
Flash. 4RAR (Cdo) has a new RSM, Ken Morris, and he has asked me to pass on to
all members of the Association that all are invited to the Sergeants' Mess when
passing by. Please ring before hand.
