Remembering the Beaufort Bomber

In March 2022, the Friends of the Beaufort Association held their last reunion at the Shrine of Remembrance. 

The first gathering of former Beaufort crew took place in September 1946 when members of No 7 Squadron gathered together for the first time following the end of the Second World War. Later, members of No 100 Squadron formed the Beaufort Squadrons Association and, as time passed, they were joined by RAAF personnel who had served in Beaufort squadrons.

Watch Tony Clark, convenor of the reunion, Air Vice Marshal Kym Osley AM, CSC, and Shrine curator Neil Sharkey discuss the history and significance of the Beaufort Bomber in Australia.
