WRAAF National Reunion.


Over the weekend 11, 12, 13 October, the West Australian Branch of the WRAAF Association hosted the 2013 WRAAF National Reunion in Perth. The hard working Committee, (below) led by Nora Cunningham (the Chair), had worked on the event for more than a year and as a result the weekend went off without a hitch and was thoroughly enjoyed by the more than 150 women who, in a lot of cases, came from the other side of Oz.


L-R:   Glenda Taylor (Committee), Sue Renton (Committee), Kerry Brocket (Committee), Judy Bland (Committee), Lyn Spring (Treasurer), Dianne Cardy (Committee), Jane Dowdeswell (Co-Ordinator), Nora Cunningham (Chair).



The program the girls organised included:


Fri 11 Oct

Meet and Greet at Rydges hotel in the city, including a Hi Tea, with bar available.

Sat 12 Oct

Tour of the RAAF Museum at the RAAFA Memorial Estate followed by a Formal sit down dinner in the Air Force Association’s Club on the Estate.

Sun 13 Oct

A Church Service to commemorate the formation of the WRAAF followed by a sightseeing tour of the City ending at the Burswood Crown Casino.



Rydges hotel, in Hay Street, in the centre of Perth. The “Meet and Greet” was held on the covered balcony above the Rydges sign. Most of the girls from out of town stayed here and when not socializing, did what girls do best – went shopping!
