Beachley Boy,

I was reading the other of the sad passing away of Googie Withers and noticed she had the OA. Quick Google and it tells me this is your Order of Australia and took the place of the Imperial Orders of the British Empire.

I see also that Australia decided to retain the VC as the pre-eminent gallantry award in the Australian system, only differing by being called the Victoria Cross for Australia. This was approved on 15 January 1991.


PS Talking to a fellow the other day and he tells me that your old AAS Chepstow now has the Rifle Regt based at Beachley. My AAS Harrogate is now called Army Foundation College and is an entirely newly built camp on the old site.

Thanks Jim, I am in UK April/May next year, staying for a short time in Somerset so might go over the bridge and see the old AAS again.

Its a bit 'Off-Topic' from the Military Cross! howver.

I live in Harrogate and Uniacke Barracks is used by the Army Foundation College (AFC) and Hildebrand Barracks accross the road as a TA & Cadet Force Training Camp, a few old building still exsist on the Hildebrand Barracks site, but none on the Uniacke Barracks site I know of.
