C Sqn (1971) Reunion
Bruce Cameron advises that a get-together of all personnel who were part of C Sqn 1 Armd Regt (including LAD and FDT) in Vietnam, is being organised. C Sqn took over from A Sqn on 17 December 1970. All those who served with the Sqn for any period from that date on are being asked if they would like to receive updates about the proposed 'mini-reunion'' in Canberra.
The idea is for a dinner to be held on Sunday 6 June 2021, following a Last Post Ceremony at the AWM. A National Commemoration for the 50th Anniversary of Operation Overlord is under active consideration and is planned to be conducted by DVA the following day. The reunion is not confined to those who participated in Overlord. The National Commemoration to which no funding has been announced is simply seen as an opportunity to reunite all those who trained and served together fifty years before.
Those who have responded positively and asked to be kept informed of arrangements, number 57 so far. Some personnel trained with C Sqn but did not deploy to Vietnam. They are also invited to attend and attempts to track them down are being made. Two have already been located and wish to attend.
Anyone who would like more information is asked to contract Bruce at firstname.lastname@example.org. Being included on the 'update list' does not have any compulsion as far as reunion attendance is concerned. (Some may just like to get in touch with mates.)
All further updates and information will be provided through the reunion organiser.
