On the 3 Apr 15, I advised that the subject book was en route to Australia from the printers. While that statement was true, it took much longer than anyone anticipated to finish the journey. I am happy to report that the books (all six pallets) have arrived in Australia at Bonegilla and are being safely stored and secured by the staff of the Head of Corps (HOC) Cell ready for distribution. It is their intention to commence distribution as soon as possible, and for those of you who have been patiently waiting, you will start to see you books arriving over the coming weeks.


I apologise once again for the delay, but hope that you enjoy the stories contained in the book.

For those yet to buy the book, there are still plenty of the Hard Cover (HC) version available, priced at $80.00 a copy. Now that the HOC Cell in the person of MAJ Bill Myers, is managing sales, the best way to secure one of these fine books is to go to http://www.raeme.org.au , click on “shop” and then click on the photo of the book. Then follow the instructions shown on the screen (and below) for payment, ensuring delivery details are provided:
