AFC Centenary WW1 Commemoration held at Point Cook on November 13th, 2016
The Division’s AFC Centenary WW1 Commemoration held at Point Cook on November 13th, 2016 was indeed a milestone event for the Association and Air Force. The event received wide acclaim from serving and former serving members and others who attended.
A highlight of the ceremony was the insertion of a capsule containing a scroll with the names of 11,401 AFC and RAAF personnel who lost their life on operational service, which was performed by Air Commodore Geoffrey Harland, CSC Commander Air Force Training Group on behalf of Chief of Air Force. The scroll includes those who perished in the Sea King accident. The capsule accompanies the capsule inserted by the then Governor-General Lord Gowrie at the Memorial’s dedication in 1938.
