BRIAN SELBY: VETERANS RETURN TO BORNEO TOUR AUGUST 2019
The unique Hero’s Graveyard War Memorial Gardens in Kuching Sarawak will be the focal centre for Australian, New Zealand, Malaysian and British Veterans returning to commemorate the 53rd anniversary of the cease fire and the declaration of the end of the Indonesian Confrontation. This reunion is enthusiastically supported by local dignitaries and the people of Sarawak. Brian sends out a message to all Veterans… Army, Navy and Air Force to participate in the tour. Brian says that given the advancing age of the Veterans, this may well be the last one organised.
AJAAY SUREIANDER CADET CORPORAL (AAFC): LIFESKILLS & CAREER
The Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) is a youth development organisation set in a military and aviation environment, administered and actively supported by the Royal Australian Air Force. It offers a wide range of activities for young adults including drill & ceremonial, aviation, aircraft recognition, fieldcraft and radio communications. These full-time, intensive leadership training courses give Cadets skills in leadership and decision-making, initiative, self-discipline, time-management, public speaking, management and administration, and operational planning. Ajaay has just completed his promotion course and tells us about his career to date and the life skills gained from his promotion course.
PAUL ROSENZWEIG OAM: AAFC & MALAYA /BORNEO HISTORY
The 6 Wing Public Affairs & Communication Officer, Flying Officer (AAFC) Paul Rosenzweig OAM, reflects on some of the highlights of our on-air interviews with AAFC cadets over the past two years as they’ve told listeners about their achievements – from gaining flying qualifications before even getting their ‘L’ plates, to achieving in the Duke of Edinburgh International Awards. It’s been a great experience for the Cadets, Paul, Listeners, and Service Voices alike.
Paul is also a retired Army Major, and is the Public Affairs Officer and historian for the SA/NT Branch of the National Malaya-Borneo Veterans Association. Through his research, he has helped the Branch commemorate the fallen from the Malayan Emergency and Confrontation in Malaysia and Borneo. We ask Paul about this other side of the volunteer work he does, why he does it, and for his take on the 2019 Malaya Borneo Veterans Reunion in Sarawak… coming up in August 2019.
