Headquarters Command is very pleased with the ongoing advancement and performance of the 1st Barton Platoon based in Perth Western Australia, whose "After Action" report is provided below along with some photo's of the unit members. This Unit is a prime example of what we are hoping to attain around the globe, given time, thus enabling the PHR to make a very positive mark by way of support where it is most needed around the globe, helping mankind in members own backyards where it may be most effective.

The 1st Michaux Platoon based in France whilst still establishing, itself, is formalizing a great project for that Platoon, a project that we hope to be able to confirm and announce in the next quarter's After Action report.

This is an ideal time to once again remind all that we are seeking those willing and interested in enlisting in the Royal Hutt River Legion to serve the Principality in it's Defence Forces and your own local community in it's needs.

1st Barton Platoon
(Perth, WESTERN AUSTRALIA)

   
         
   

I am pleased to supply the quarterly report for January to March 2013, from the Royal Hutt River Legion (RHRL) – 1st Barton Platoon.

In the September – December 2012 1st Barton Platoon Quarterly Report four priorities were established; Recruitment; Holding a second ‘busy bee’ for a local charity; Continuing to provide food for homeless people; Continuing to provide books, magazines and toys for community organizations.

On the first of these we have attracted a core of seven people who provide ongoing support, to date one of these has joined the RHRL. Whilst we would like our numbers to grow at a more rapid rate it must be considered that all community organizations, including those with strong institutional roots such as trade unions and political parties, are experiencing difficulties attracting new members. I hope that we will continue to attract new supporters and that the current supporters will decide to take the next step and join the Legion.

The last three priorities have been fully implemented, as the report below will demonstrate. 
 

Activities January to March 2013
