Welcome fellow Gunners and Visitors ,
May I wish you the warmest of Gunner welcomes.
The Royal Australian Artillery Association is an organisation made up of serving and former Gunners and Friends who support the ongoing promotion, support and preservation of all aspects associated with Artillery within the Australian context. The key objectives of the organisation include:-
- Fostering of esprit-de-corps, Gunner (Artillery) traditions and comradeship amongst all ranks;
- Promotion of the enlistment of all into the Units within the Corps of the Royal Australian Artillery;
- Communicating with the Gunner fraternity; and
- Representing and making representations on behalf of all Gunners.
We are a growing organisation and incorporate within our entity the following branches:-
- RAA Association Newcastle;
- 12 Field Regiment ( Vietnam) Association;
- 23 Field Regiment Association;
And a very significant involvement with:-
- The Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery, being the actual serving members and Units of the Corps, in particular the three Sydney based units 7 Field Regiment, 23 Field Regiment and A Field Battery; and
- The Royal Australian Artillery Historical Company Inc based at the National Artillery Museum at North Fort, North Head, Manly NSW. The museum houses Australia’s most significant, single collection of Artillery memorabilia and artefacts.
We maintain close associations with all Post-WW2 Unit Associations and seek to build the unity and concentration of effort in all aspects. We march together on ANZAC Day and other relevant events, present to relevant organisations, dine, play golf and conduct an Annual Church Service.
Please feel free to explore our site and meet our members. If you believe that you support the objectives of what we are seeking to do and are not a member then I implore that you join, whether you are a former serving member, a family member of a former Gunner, or merely someone who seeks to extol Gunner values. There is a great camaraderie amongst our members and new faces are always welcome.
Please enjoy your Visit, and remember - A Gunners business is always BOOMING!!!
