Our great mate and First Tour Veteran, Bill Williams has been our 1 RAR Association representative and POC in Victoria for many years. Bill has decided to pass the baton on to the younger generation after long and loyal service to 1 RAR and our Association. We wholeheartedly thank Bill for everything he has done for us and the veteran community, his knowledge of our history and his understanding of DVA, TPI and other organisations is second to none… thanks mate for everything.
Phil Hodgskiss has kindly stepped up to offer his services as Bill’s replacement, Hodgo is a great bloke and good operator and is the type of younger veteran we need to continue to move forward as an Association. The Hawthorn RSL has kindly offered their club up as a meeting place for 1 RAR veterans and will also secure our banner. I won’t steal any of Phil’s thunder but I’m sure he will keep us all advised on the Melbourne ANZAC DAY March and other future events.
Welcome Phil, looking forward to working closely with you.
