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 advised recently on the RAEME National Website, and in the last edition of the RAEME Association Queensland ‘Spanner News’ for 2014, that the final manuscript for the CHP book was with the publishers, and a number of our team were collaboratively completing the final editing process. I am happy to report the book was provided to the printers shortly thereafter.

PROGRESS REPORT ON ‘WITH SKILL AND FIGHTING – CRAFTSMEN OF THE AUSTRALIAN ARMY 1942-2014’ DATED 14 FEB 15

I advised on 23 Nov 14 that the final manuscript for the CHP book was with the publishers, and a number of our team were completing the final editing process collaboratively with them – see the attached email.

I am happy to report the book has now been provided to the printers, who advise that the printing will be completed by late March and delivered in bulk to the Corps Cell Bandiana by mid-April.
