Hello dear folks of RAEME,

I am making an enquiry regarding what physical signage and TAC markings would have been on engineers trucks during the Second World War. I am currently restoring a 1942 Ford CMP truck in the livery of my Fathers infantry battalion, and will soon be acquiring another truck that I wish to present as an engineers vehicle of some type. My Son Bryce enlisted late last year, and after marching out from Kapooka in January, is now a member of RAEME at Bandiana where he is about to commence his training as a vehicle mechanic. My Wife and I are extremely proud of his chosen career, and with that in mind I would like to restore my second vehicle in his honour, and to acknowledge the contribution the Corp have made to Australias military history. I had hoped to buy a copy of the RAEME book and search for the information myself, but was disappointed (but not surprised) to see it has sold out.

I would greatly appreciate any information or photos you can provide.

Sincerely yours,

Anthony (Tony) Baker
Military Vehicle Restorer

TIM MCCOMBE OAM

 2 February 2015
It is with great sadness that I extend my condolences to the family and friends of Tim McCombe OAM. 
Tim passed away on Saturday, 31 January 2015, at Bowral District Hospital, New South Wales. 
Tim McCombe OAM was a veteran who devoted his time to lending a hand to other veterans and current serving men and women. 
A regular soldier himself, Tim served in the Australian Army from 1964 to 1973 in locations including Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam. During the Vietnam War he served as an infantry soldier from May to August 1967 with the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment and was severely injured by a mine explosion. 

Dear AICAB Members,

Applications close 11 May 15, however positions do not commence until Jan 2016. There is ample time before commencement for Standby Reserve members to become active and for those transitioning from ARA to be ready.

Please note that applicants do not need to be Indigenous to apply, but should have an interest in community engagement and stakeholder management.

This message will also be distributed via the RIN, FORCENET, to the APCDs that handle members transitioning to the Reserve and many other distribution lists.

With thanks for your support.

A national day of commemoration will be held on March 21 2015 to recognise and commemorate the contribution and sacrifice of Australian troops who served in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

It is expected that the 400 Australian military personnel still serving in Afghanistan – in training and support roles – will largely be home by then.

Commemorative activities to mark the end of Operation Slipper will include parades of current and former Australian Defence Force and support personnel.

Australia’s mission in Afghanistan has come at a heavy human cost - 40 Australian soldiers lost their lives and more than 260 personnel were wounded.
