Voice Pipe August 2020

Voice Pipe August 2020     Going The Distance - I never did school cross country to the best on my ability, however I now know the feeling of what stamina and fitness is all about after the past two years of planning and heading up the organising committee for the recently cancelled 2020 JR Reunion. They say “once you organise a reunion you probably never do another one”, I now know why! What a workload it is, I guess it was like having five weddings in five days, yeah that’s a big call! This is my second Tingira reunion...

2020 JR REUNION Refund Rollout Ready To Go

2020 JR REUNION Refund Rollout Ready To Go

Apply For Refund Today REUNION.TINGIRA.ORG.AU Tingira Australia President, Lance Ker, has given the green light for the 2020 JR Reunion refunds to commence after several large deposits were returned to the Association last week. “We have a large portion of the deposit cash back in the can; the budget boys have juggled the $ figs and we will all lose 19 cents in the dollar. I’m very happy with that outcome, last week the equation was about 80 cents and looking very grim’ said a much relieved Lance Ker from his Queensland Bundaberg pad on Sunday evening. 2020 JR Reunion...

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.
