Third Quarter Report
July - September 2008:

Chief Commissioner Metcalfe reports once more of the service and support given to the local community by he and the members of this unit throughout the Third quarter of 2008
being July - September inclusive.

Chief Commissioner Metcalfe reports:...............

 "During this period we delivered 71 "Meals on Wheels" to the aged and infirm in the town of Outlook.
The first weekend in August saw the town of Outlook celebrate its centenary in great style.  I am pleased to state that we were given a place immediately behind the Royal Canadian Legion (Veterans) float - near the front of the parade.  It was a proud moment for us all. Our float flew the Canadian flag, Hutt River flag and our own standard.

We also carried out security duties at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall during the two day celebrations.

I have attached some snaps taken of some of our unit preparing for the Outlook Centenary Celebration Parade.

My wife and I feel very honoured to have received the Commander and Knight of the Illustrious Order of Merit respectively and we will always wear the decorations with pride at public functions should we be in uniform or not.
We send our loyal greetings to Prince Leonard and trust that he is somewhat better now".
God Guard Thee and All Who Serve.

G. B. Metcalfe K.I.O.M., A.M.M.

Chief Commissioner.
