RAF 100th celebration at Government House Melbourne

BCCAV Committee members were invited to a RAF centenary celebration morning tea at Government House, Melbourne, hosted by The Honourable Linda Dessau AC.

The gathering was also addressed by British Consul General Christopher Holtby OBE who spoke of his grandfather’s association both with Bomber Command and Australia as he was involved with the ‘Highball’ bouncing bomb trials which took place at Narromine in Australia. The Highball was a smaller version of the bouncing bomb to be delivered by Mosquito aircraft in an anti-shipping role but the war’s end precluded its use.
