A look back at the CMF in 1972
From The Film Australia Collection. Made by The Commonwealth Film Unit 1972. Directed by Greg Reading. Examines the role and attitudes to the CMF (Citizen Military Forces), its relations with employers, its activities and the reasons why its officers and men and women continue. The video runs about 20 mins … a bit of a step back in time.
Let me know if you spot anyone you know.
I was in the CMF in 1972, A Co, 4 Bn, rifle company, I enjoyed the memories the video brought back, especially the ANZAC range at Malabar, not to mention spit polishing boots. The gunner, towards the end of the video, was in the CMF same time as I was a CMF gunner too, in 130 Corps Loc Bat.
