SPONSORSHIP

OF THE

44th PLATOON
1st RECRUIT TRAINING BATTALION

         
In early 2016 The Australian Artillery Association was invited to sponsor a newly created platoon at the 1st Recruit Training Battalion, Kapooka.   On the 21st September 2016, with the financial assistance of a number of Artillery Associations and donations from the wider Artillery community, we presented at total of 12 framed Artillery photographs to the 44th Platoon in their lines at Kapooka.

On Friday 23rd September 2016 we attended the 44th Platoon's first March Our.  With weeks of rain leading up to the parade the sun shined through for a glorious day and the men and women of the 44th Platoon executed their drill with perfection putting on a parade that would satisfy any Regimental Sergeant Major but most importantly they were sure to have impressed their respective mothers, father, relatives and friends that attended the parade.

The total cost to have 12 photographs enlarged to A3 size and framed was $1364.00 of which we raised $1,248.30  with the Australian Artillery Association funding the difference of $115.70.

There are still a number of other items that we wish to purchase for the 44th Platoon such as 2 Pull Up banners and a vinyl banner therefore should you wish to donate towards the sponsorship of the 44th Platoon please contact the Webmaster direct via email for information on how to donate.

The Australian Artillery Association wishes to thank all those involved in donating monies and/or photographs to make this project achievable and successful.   A Full list of both monetary donors and photograph donors can be viewed below.

To view all the photographs of the presentation and parade along with a photograph of the framed pictures please visit our Photo Gallery.
