The Tatura Guardian - - News -

The fol­low­ing day club trea­surer, Cpl Tim Pratt and Mr Price at­tended the event in Tatura and pre­sented the fam­ily with an en­graved port de­canter fro­mall the mem­bers of the Robert Mac­tier VC Club and a bot­tle of the lim­it­ededi­tion vin­tage port to the RSL.

‘‘To at­tend this event after 12 months of plan­ning, at­tend­ing the Tatura event as of­fi­cial guests of the RSL to lay a wreath on be­half of the mem­bers was very mov­ing (and) we were keen to meet the wider Mac­tier fam­ily and con­tinue our con­nec­tion with them,’’ Mr Price said.

‘‘With more events planned into the fu­ture we hope the Mac­tier fam­ily can once again come back to the club to share fam­ily tales of Robert as a boy/young man and see that his legacy truly does live on in the hearts and minds of young mem­bers of the De­fence Sig­nals Com­mu­nity.’’
