Dear Members,
My apologies in the lateness of the above newsletter being sent out. Since it was written there has been a number of things that have happened. Firstly, our secretary Greg Cant has taken a severe fall and broken his femur. The femur has been pin and plated with Greg now in Rehab care  undergoing rehab treatment. Unfortunately, this information only come to light in past week, via text. And therefore, I am now sending this newsletter out.

Secondly – long-time member of the association meetings, COL Ray Hyslop – patron of 5 Field Ambulance passed away last Monday after a long stint after a stroke. His funeral being on Friday 2 Sep 22, 11.30 am Camellia Chapel Macquarie Park Cemetery/Crematorium.

And lastly, the secretary for 5 Field Ambulance Association has been hospitalised after a fall that has resulted in him suffering spinal damage to his neck with C2/3 fractures. Therefore it has been an eventful week.
