The Council is delighted to announce a presentation by the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Angus Campbell AO, DSC, to be held in the Spender Theatre, Weston Creek, on Thursday 31 May, commencing at 1800 hours. (Please note further change of date.)
In 2016, General Campbell addressed members and guests on the Ryan Review, which concerned training, education and doctrine in the Army.

As General Campbell has now been Chief of Army for almost three years, this promises to be a rich and insightful session, not to be missed.
