What we do
As an Association, what we do is the following:
- Provide a forum for the maintenance of the traditions of the Regiment;
- Provide an independent voice outside of the Army for the discussion of contemporary topics of relevance to the Regiment;
- Provide a forum for ex-serving members of the Regiment to gather and keep in touch with one another; and
- Provide an avenue where serving members of the Regiment can learn from the lessons of the past from those who’ve been there.
The President and the Committee would like to take this opportunity to wish all its members and their families a very happy Christmas and a safe holiday period. We look forward to welcoming you all back in 2018 for what should be another interesting year for the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery. Stay with us.
