Submariners head to the bush

SUBMARINERS will be spending this weekend in the bush.

The Submarine Association of Australia Queensland Branch (SAAQ) members, partners and families will be visiting Kingaroy from February 15-18.

This visit will coincide with the group's quarterly general meetings, which will be hosted by the Kingaroy RSL and Kingaroy-Memerambi RSL Sub Branch.

The Submarine Association of Australia is a non-profit organisation fostering the unique Esprit de Corps of the Submarine Service at a national and state level.

The group normally holds their meetings in Brisbane, but choose to sometimes travel away to regional areas to allow country members to join in.

This gives them the opportunity to foster relationships and enjoy the camaraderie with other retired and serving personnel from all branches of Australia's Defence Force through their respective RSLs and sub branches.

The SAAQ members will be having a dinner on Saturday, February 16, with members of the Kingaroy RSL Sub Branch and guests of honour South Burnett Mayor Keith Campbell and his wife.
