Dear Les,

Reference: Memorial to Recognize the Men and Women who Served

In the Malayan Emergency and Indonesian Confrontation

Dear Les,

On behalf of the Board of the Royal Australian Regiment Association we wish to acknowledge and support your Foundation in the establishment of a Memorial in the grounds of the Australian War Memorial to recognize all who served in the Malayan Emergency and the Indonesian Confrontation. Sadly, these two very important operational involvements by our Regiment seem to have passed us all by without the appropriate recognition and respect for those that were killed in action or died in these operations. Your proposal and appeal are strongly supported by our Association where so many of our Regiment were involved.

We will be promulgating throughout our membership to encourage all to support your appeal.

Duty First

Michael von Berg MC OAM

Chair and National President.
