    April 2017 Courier

    The latest edition of Courier is now available for download here. I'm also pleased to announce the Double Reds pin is now available for purchase via our online store. This pin is modelled to match the original association pin in a faithful representation of the unit's double diamond color patch. It's made with vitreous enamel, as opposed to paint, and is made in Australia. Order yours now, before stock runs out! We're also pleased to announce Archie Campbell's "The Double Reds of Timor" is now available for purchase as a digital PDF also via our online store.
