We're sorry this edition is a bit late, it was meant to be finished and available prior to Christmas, and a few of the stories will reflect that, but unfortunately, the delay couldn't be helped. Yours had an unforseen stay in Greenslopes hospital in November and then needed a few days to get over things, and then the Christmas break was upon us, and things ground to a halt as friends and family took over our spare time. But everything is now back to normal, we've now got some time on our hands, and we've managed to finish the RAM - and we hope you enjoy it.


While we make every effort to ensure that there are no spelling mistakes and that all the links and navigation is correct on the site, mistakes sometimes sneak past our huge team of proof readers. If you see any errors, no matter how small or trivial, please let us know so we can fix them and kick some back side...

James "Scotty" Palmer, who was in the RAAF from 1968 to 1974 and who now lives back in Scotland, is looking for a bunch of his old mates.  See page 18

Ken Hunt recently went through the RAAF Museum at Point Cook and he has sent us some photos.

You can see them and read what he has to say on page 19
