I should say... Sid is at Kapooka for his initial training with the Australian Army.
Following his basic, his training will be with the Australian Combat Field Engineers. A sapper!

Congrats to your son, and to a proud dad & mom.

My boys are growing like bamboo, it will be a few years yet before they leave the nest - but it feels like it all happens within the blink of an eye

Default Congratulations!

Fantastic photographs, you can never have too many Sappers. I come from a family of Engineers but somehow my Son ended up as a Cook in the RCN.

Hi Howard

You have every right to be proud.

Sapper though...........Well, OK.

Kids make their own paths sometimes; My Dad was 39 years RCAF and I ended up in the Armoured Corps AND married a Navy Cook! (Not Ed's boy!!)

Lucky for me:
