The Squadron has embraced the digital age during Lockdown and this week Members have enjoyed a variety of webinars and online meetings.
'Reflections on the modern ANZAC experience'
We were treated to an excellent presentation on Monday. Squadron Member Lt. Col. Peter Curran told the stories of Capt. Stuart Milson who lost his life at Gallipoli, and Peter 'Des' Kearney who served in WW2. He then introduced fellow Member Maj. Gen. (ret'd) Angus McLachlan AO who spoke movingly of the Anzac spirit of today's veterans - often very young people.
'The living sea walls of Sydney Harbour'
Dr Melanie Bishop, a coastal biodiversity expert from the Sydney Institute of Marine Science, gave us a tour of several sites around our harbour, examining the different 'tile' structures deployed and their varied success rates in attracting new life to our foreshores. Keep your eyes open the next time you take a walk!
