New Canungra Vietnam Memorial Dedication.
ED: Be sure to clink on the links at the bottom of the page.
I am a subscriber to Frontline and also on the committee of the above project. (ex 6RAR SVN 66/67 – Sec of Runaway Bay RSL SB) I have not seen any reference to this in your regular missives, so here it is. I ask if you could please include in a future issue.
Briefly: the existing memorial was built in 2000 within the confines of the Canungra Army base. Access now is almost impossible due to entry conditions. The CO suggested Kokoda Youth Foundation relocate it to the main gate area where it would be accessible to everyone.
Our Runaway Bay RSL SB was invited to assist, and the project is now at completion.
Dedication Date: Friday 01 December 1100h on site, Kokoda Barracks, Canungra.
Dedicated by: Rev Maj Richard Brown MM, a Battle of Long Tan Veteran plus other dignitaries.
Would appreciate you including so that our Vietnam Vets within Australia will be aware.
