Royal Australian Air Force — Sir Thomas Blamey was Chair of the panel that, in 1920, was tasked with the creation of the RAAF. Sadly, the RAAF gives little, or no, recognition to this fact. The producers sincerely wish that one day the RAAF names one of its bases or facilities after the Field Marshal. The re-naming of RAAF Wagga to RAAF Blamey would be most appropriate as Tom Blamey was born 12 klms away from the base at Lake Albert NSW, which is now an outer suburb of Wagga.
RSL National H.Q. — 'The Blamey Enigma' writer/producer Bill Halliwell is a former member of the RAAF and is a proud member of the RSL, Tasmanian Branch.
