At a recent committee meeting the Tingira team were reviewing our five year ‘strategic plan’. Part of the process was for the Secretary to present current status of our assets, apart from the obvious merchandise and the laptop computer we thought this should be easy part of the exercise, but then the Secretary delivered a few curly ones for our future consideration. Physical assets - The Tingira Bell, The Tingira oars, The five Ceremonial Lifebuoys, Tingira banners (7) Tingira flags (7), the ‘Original’ Tingira flag, The Stonehaven Shield, The Stonehaven trophies (6), the original Tingira manuscripts (3), the Tingira history books

DARYL WALTON ‘Stonehaven Shining Star Out West’

Tingira Australia Association President, Lance Ker, today announced that former Royal Australian Navy Junior Recruit, Daryl Walton, from Western Australia, is the winner of the 2019 Tingira Stonehaven Medal. The Stonehaven Medal is awarded to the Tingira member who can show cause in their local community or present naval duties ‘going beyond and above the normal call of duty’. The Stonehaven Shield and medal are donated and supported by the Cumberland RSL sub-Branch in Sydney for which the Tingira Australia Association is most grateful of their continued support. The Stonehaven’s origins trek back in history to 1926 when Governor-General of Australia, Lord

Tingira Australia Association

The function of the Tingira Australia Association is to keep the ‘Spirit’ of the HMAS Cerberus and HMAS Leeuwin Junior Recruits alive through the re-uniting of class and shipmates as a true social level.

Hon Life membership and general Membership of the Association is open to all personnel who have served on board HMAS Cerberus and HMAS Leeuwin and worn the famous ‘Tingira Flash’. Hon Life membership is also open to Associate members, offered to our friends and family, Tingira descendants, Leeuwin Instructors, Ships Company and Officers of the RAN.

Membership now stands at 600 plus after our first five years. At the 2010 JR reunion over 3,000 boys gathered and we reformed as this association from that event. Our members ages range from over 75 years young, to those stalwart members still serving in the RAN today. Although the majority are dispersed throughout the length and breadth of the Australian countryside, many members are also scattered across international waters.

The membership is kept informed of events, past, present and future by means of our website www.tingira.org.au and our twice yearly magazine ‘Voice Pipe’.

The association also supports the Recruit School at HMAS Cerberus, with a ‘Tingira class’ as part of the new Yarra division. At each Passing Out Parade, the winner of the ‘Tingira Topshot’ award becomes an Honorary Tingira member of the association, and his class mates have the opportunity to join the association ranks of general membership.

Support for all the activities and services of the Association is provided by unpaid volunteers who are elected to the committee for a three year term. We do not have lists of boys names who served in Ships Sobraon, Tingira, Cerberus and Leeuwin; these are held by Dept of Defence. The association are always open to sponsorship and committee fresh ideas through the Secretary.
