Due to many reasons this website was to close WEF 30 June 2023. However I was reminded why this and other Websites that I have initiated over the past 20plus years was to be a conduit of information to keep members of the Somalia Veterans Association post 1993 informed with the ability of contact over the future years.
Due to a substantial donation received by a member of ASC I, this Website and associated email address will continue until 27 July 2024.
Following on from July 2024 is in the hands of those who would like this Site to continue by donations from members of ASC I to IV and any other Somalia Veteran.
Folks, can you believe that it's almost been four weeks, since we were all in Canberra! Thanks to Tim Grainger from Government House, please find below (hopefully..) a Drop Box link of the photos taken by the official photographer at our Government House Reception, apologies for the delay.
By way of a quick update, with regards to the actual physical awarding of the MUC to Somali Vets.
Through advice received from Ken about an hour ago, it appears that the 'mechanics' of this process have now commenced, following an RFI from the Defence LO to DVA.
As a result, the ASC UNOSOM Nominal Rolls (along with those of fellow Somali Vets from the 1 RAR Bn Gp and HMAS Tobruk) are about to forwarded to Ceremonial Cell Army Headquarters who will commence the award distribution process. My understanding would be, that liaison will occur with AHQ counterparts in Navy and Air Force HQ. Exactly how and where the award will be issued, is still TBA, how this will occur for those living overseas is also TBA. We will keep you all informed.
Your assistance is now needed in passing on this info on, to those who were not in Canberra with us. My email list is not exhaustive.
I also request that Greg Jackson and Stew Murphy kindly place this info on the SVA FB page; and for Gary Conquest to also kindly post this info, on the Veterans of Somalia website.
All the best for now,
22 May 23
