Invitation to RAAF Vietnam Veterans Group Marching in Sydney on Anzac Day 2024

A Message from Graham Christian, Coordinator RAAF VVA NSW

Good Afternoon Gentlemen,

I am writing to ask if you may be marching with our RAAF Vietnam Veterans Group in the Sydney Anzac Day march this year, and whether you may be interested in our get together immediately after the March.

I need to know now if you think you will attend

No commitment at this stage, I just need to have an idea of likely numbers so I can decide whether or not to book a suitable venue.

So, please only reply if:

  1. You plan to attend the Sydney Anzac Day march and march with our RAAF Vietnam Veterans Group; and
  2. You would be interested in joining us for “refreshments” after the march.

NB Please reply by email to:

Thank you,

Kind regards,

Graham Christian, Coordinator, RAAF Vietnam Veterans Association (NSW)
