Ladies and Gents,

We are proud to announce the impending release of RAEME's new humour book, Straight from the Horse's Mouth.

This book is a compilation of 101 funny stories from around our Corps. Some of these stories go back to the late 1940s, being when our Corps was in its infancy.

Names have been changed to protect the innocent (and the not-so-innocent) but we are sure those who were there at the time will remember exactly what happened.

A compilation of funny stories from around our Corps is nearing completion for release by 01 Dec 2021. This is a private project initiated by two RAEME members, Ian Cook and Pete Shefford.

Space exists in the book for sponsors to advertise their businesses.

OPERATION GRAIN HARVEST ASSIST

OUTLINE PLAN

The Problem

  • Australia is facing a chronic skilled farm labour shortage, following our international border closure and the nation’s hard border stance during the ongoing COVID19 pandemic. 
  • Our Grains sector is at risk of reputational harm and market failure especially from a lack of skilled heavy farm machinery operators as well as truck and other farm workers, who are central to the proper functioning of the entire grains supply chain. Potential losses on some farms could be many $millions, with $billions at risk on a national level. 
  • Australia is at or close to the technical threshold of "full employment", putting the grains industry in the difficult situation of competing for workers in a very tight labour market, particularly with a booming mining economy that also requires workers with the same or similar skill sets. 
  • The industry, initially in WA and Queensland, requires access to a suitable workforce by early-mid September 2021 in preparation for the upcoming harvest season. The situation in most other States is similar, if slightly delayed as the grains in WA are the first due for harvesting. Please note the short lead time.

Sharing Australia's military and service history through the experiences of our veterans

Look through the Anzac Portal to uncover the experiences of the men and women who have served Australia in wars, conflicts and peace. The hardship of overseas service extends to the family and friends they leave behind. We commemorate their service and sacrifice.
