Description

The Minister for the Army, Mr Bob Katter, was on the move in NSW yesterday (July 12) visiting two of the Army's officer training establishments. During the morning, at the Officer Training Unit, Scheyville (pronounced Sky-ville) near Windsor, NSW, he reviewed his first graduation. Afterwards, he flew by Army helicopter to the Women's Royal Australian Army Corps School at Georges Heights, Sydney, NSW. At Georges Heights, Mr Katter spent about one and a half hours inspecting training, accommodation and messing facilities at the Womens Royal Australian Army Corps School. The school has about 86 officer cadets undergoing training. It also conducts courses for recruits and for non commissioned officers. One of the best known soldiers at the school to meet the Minister was Corporal Digger, the school's dog mascot. Mr Katter was accompanied during his tour by the Assistant Director of WRAAC, Lieutenant Colonel B. Maxwell, and the Chief Instructor of the school, Major M. Holmes.
