Bomber Command Commemorative Association of Victoria was honoured to represent all veterans of the RAAF who gave so much of themselves during WW2 at the Kew RSL Anzac Day march held in brilliant sunshine on Sunday April 14th.
Our contingent was led by Chair Paul Dipnall and Vice-Chair Jan Dimmick. It was a pleasure to participate along with the Niddrie Squadron of the Air League Cadets who carried our banner. Well done to the Kew RSL for their hospitality and great company. Our thanks and appreciation to Gavin Fahey, President Kew RSL and his Committee for their hospitality and goodwill on the day.
