The RAR Bibliography

This RAR  bibliography records the known published and unpublished history of the Regiment since its formation in 1948.

It has been prepared by an RAR Task Group comprising Terry & Margaret Dinneen, Darcy Dugan and Ted Chitham with assistance from David Horner, Michael O’Brien, Mick Malone, Gary MacKay and Ian Kuring and others, all intent on recording for posterity the rich history of our Regiment.  The duty of maintaining and expanding the bibliography now lies with our registrar Russell Linwood.

It is a dynamic work and will forever be a work in progress as we, with your help, identify material that we have not yet recorded. This is particularly so with the many electronic recordings and productions made for varied purposes for radio, TV, retail and home entertainment, etc.

Please help us. We invite your additions, amendments, contributions and comments; please message us through the contact page here. Thank you

The bibliography is recorded in sixteen (16)  Parts wherein each is divided chronologically into periods reflected by operational service areas outside of Australia, and overall service by the RAR since its inception, including inside Australia’s national boundary.
