From the archive: At the December 2018 meeting our club President Joe VK3MAB, presented a copy of the Wireless Men and Women at War book to Peter Whitelaw, President of the Woodend RSL who respectfully and gratefully, accepted the book on behalf of the RSL.
This book was published by the WIA at the time of the ANZAC Centenary and in recognition of the many amateur radio operators who volunteered their services during the World Wars and other conflicts.
The book contains stories about our fellow amateurs, both men and women, not previously published. There were 19 contributing authors to the compendium, two of whom are MRARC club members, Jenny VK5ANW/VK3WQ and Peter VK3RV.
In 2018, our club had been meeting at the RSL rooms for about 7 years.
