  • ANZAC Day - On ANZAC Day all who served with the unit are invited to gather and march behind the unit banner in their capital city and participate in the after-march social activities.

    Call Sign Vampire is our main magazine and is published twice a year. The newsletter is reliant on  input from Association members. Vampire Update – is published between the main newsletters to update members on news and events that have or are about to occur.

  • GREATEST BENEFIT - Benefits of membership are many, but no price can be attached to the level of camaraderie and the sense of belonging to what is a unique group of people with a common bond of service. Friendships that have endured, and grown, have turned our Association into something much deeper than a social forum, we have become ‘family’ and that is the most special thing about the 1AFH Assoc Inc.
