On joining you will receive "Armour" and "Ironsides". Also, you will be kept up to date with our other concerns and activities, for example:
- Through our initiative the RAACA has been given a site in Anzac Parade, Canberra for a National Boer War Memorial (NBWM) to commemorate our ancestor Boer War Troopers. We now have to build the Memorial.
- We have succeeded, after 25 years of lobbying, to gain Veterans’ Entitlement Act (VEA) benefits for the RAACA Atomic Veterans.
- After five years of lobbying we won the battle to introduce a Combat Badge for entitled Black Hats.
- We continue to seek VEA cover for those RAAC WW11 Troopers who spent years training in WA but
failed to receive that cover.
- We have succeeded in having a Service Medal introduced after 4 years Service instead of the old 15
- We are lobbying to have Frommells commemorated in the Sydney Shrine.
- We stock AFV Crewman’s patches and other memorabilia for sale.
- We provide Advocacy help and lobby to improve Service conditions through our membership of peak
ex Service organizations for example; we continue to press the Government to change the current inequitable
indexing system of ADF
- We have a cash grant scheme to assist any member in difficulties.
- We offer education scholarships to descendant children of any age for any level of education.
- We conduct commemorative and social activities
- We send Christmas parcels to Black Hats deployed overseas.
- We maintain a connection with the RAAC Head of Corps and the Armoured School by holding our
annual Congress at the School and are seeking more formal ties with the wider Black Hat Community.
Please note the options listed in the Application Form enclosed. We hope you will decide to join the extended Black Hat family of the RAACA.
Yours in the Spirit of Armour and with best wishes,
John Haynes OAM (Retd)
