Still alive, still here....

About to go back to work from holidays and about to be very busy indeed readying for another deployment. All my gear is packed up and I'll be gone for 6 months so no living history for me anytime soon.See More

About me:

I’m Red and I’m a serving member of the RAAF. I’ve done some 30 years in the ADF starting out in the ARes before joining the Air Force.

I started doing living history when I was in 4/19th Prince of Wales’s Light Horse Regiment in Bairnsdale in Victoria as our troop had a bunch of guys who were interested and hey, the Army was willing to support it. Moved to Tassie in 1985 and joined the (then) 12th Independent Rifle Coy, Royal Tasmanian Regiment (Youngtown) where an even smaller bunch of guys did very little living history as 12th Bn AIF. Joined the Air Force in 1987 and ended up portraying AFC with a RAAF drill team in Melbourne. Got back into living history many years later when I was posted to Sydney and ended up joining AGWA. Not doing anywhere near as much re-enactment as I’d like to these days.

I currently portray 12th Bn AIF although can easily do dismounted LH or most other WW1 diggers, albeit older troops!! Might start a Chelsea Pensioners Living History Group if there is enough interest!!

First chance to get onto my own computer in around 4 weeks! Currently doing YOFT (Year One Familiarization Training) with my new troops. Not a bad bunch this year. We have a week less to train them so I'm working my butt off. Happy days!

Remembrance Day 2008

Went to the Australian War Memorial (AWM) today with cadets from the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) where I work. The Remembrance Day ceremony was very good focusing, as you'd expect, on the 90th anniversary of the signing of the 1918 Armistice. The day was very warm at around 27deg Celsius but unfortunately we were made to wear winter jackets despite it being summer dress period. Sweated like a pig but I must say that we did look more impressive with jackets on!
