1st Barton Platoon
(Perth, WESTERN AUSTRALIA)

   
   

I am pleased to supply the quarterly report for April – June 2015, from the Royal Hutt River Legion (RHRL) – 1st Barton Platoon.

In spite of their many responsibilities all members of the platoon, and supporters, contributed to the priorities set out in our last “After Action” report; providing gifts for seniors, providing book and periodicals to libraries, doctor’s surgeries, hospitals and retirement villages; support refugees; provide food to homeless people; participate in the 2015 HBF Run for a Reason and recruiting additional members.

In spite of suffering a great loss Amanda Casselton remained an active participant in the Platoon, helping to post relevant links on the Warren Blackwood Human Services Network and the WA Information Network. She was also active in providing books for public libraries and other worthy recipients. Sgt Casselton was promoted to Lieutenant and made a member of the Illustrious Order of Merit in the 2015 Independence Day Honors list. This honour and promotion are greatly deserved and reflect her valuable contribution to our activities.

Lisa “Aliya” Oliver, now the mother of a newborn baby, continued to support our activities. Sergeant Oliver was particularly active in preparing gifts for socially isolated seniors. Cpl Oliver was promoted to Sergeant in the 2015 Independence Day Honors list and awarded the appointed an Officer in the Illustrious Order of Merit. This award and advancement in rank is a timely recognition of her contribution to our work.

Ms. Jennifer Jenkins continued to be an active supporter, providing children’s books and other gifts for refugees.
