We get a few mails from blokes asking why their name does not exist on the "List of Members", even though they joined some time ago and sent in their $10.00.

As we've said, our old data base was so far out of date that it was next to useless so we had to ditch it and start again. We now do it all on line so there is nothing to print out and post in and as there are no costs involved, joining is now free.


Please check the list of names and if your name isn't there, please click on the "Join the Association" tag (there's one on the top of each page) fill in the details and send it to us.


Also, if you change your address, or phone numbers or email address, or you just want to say hello, or you want to give us a tongue lashing, you can do so by clicking on the "Contact Us" tag, also at the top of each page and filling in the details. It's all done on line, no printing out forms and no postage.





We've added a new section to the RAM. This page will be for people wishing to let you know of upcoming reunions or events, people trying to get you to go to things or trying to flog you stuff.


We have a mail distribution list which includes over 1,100 names and it's growing all the time,  SO!!   If you've got a reunion coming up or you're trying to off load a bunch of T-shirts or caps, let us know and we'll gladly publish it for you.


You can download the full magazine in PDF format  HERE.

It is a very large file, contains 137 pages and will take a while to download.
