Veterans catch up for a laugh and chat

Many a story was shared at a luncheon earlier this month at the Byford and Districts Country Club. 

Members of the Veterans and Friends Group gathered on May 1 to catch up and chat about their life serving for our country. 

Group founder Bob McGuire said he formed the group about four years ago when he was working as a volunteer at ANZAC House in Perth. 

“I initially aimed it at national servicemen from Nashos WA group as a start but later we opened the social group,” he said. 

“Veterans and Friends has got a few people out of the house and given them a social outlet where they look forward to meeting their friends each month.” 

The group now has 36 members from a range of RSL branches in Perth and meet on the first Wednesday of the month at either Bayswater Hotel or Byford and Districts Country Club. 

All former national servicemen or women are invited to come along. 

For more information or to join call Bob on 0402 576 086.
