Please support the legacy of the 2nd 2nd Commando Unit - leaving Timor-Leste with the promise "your friends don't forget you” - and we are fulfilling that legacy.

The Kokoda Trail is popular amongst Australian history -- Now... we tell the story of the lesser-known contributions that helped make this victory possible - the 2nd 2nd Commando Unit and Timorese civilians.

Join us online ‪THIS Saturday 12th Sept at 1pm‬ - and watch the Facebook Premier of this short 15 minute video as we deep dive into the strong bond forged in WW2 - and the fight for independence of East Timor now known as "Timor-Leste" - our nearest neighbour.

Our first episode launches tomorrow (‪12/09/2020) at 1PM‬ AEST.
You can watch the videos on:

We hope that you enjoy the video!

Please feel free to share this amongst friends, we hope to promote Timor-Leste to as many people as possible.

The 2nd 2nd commando unit, there during the time of the Japanese invasion, promised the Timorese: "your friends don't forget you", and in their honour, to continue fulfilling that promise, ATLAS was formed.

ALTAS provides direct and ongoing funding to support education activities in East Timor - "Together lifting the burden of poverty through supporting training, education and job creation".

Please share this to your friends too if you feel ok to do that.

If you could register for our Facebook video Premier, get a reminder sent and watch this short video ‪this Saturday‬ - we would so grateful

Lest we forget

Greetings Members,

Due to the latest personal space restriction for indoor meetings set by the Federal Government, this Sunday’s General meeting of the 22nd March is cancelled.
The Committee have decided that all meetings, events and activities at Schools, Aged Care facilities, including ANZAC day are cancelled for the next three months. A review of the suspension of those activities and meetings will be held in June 2020.
We are only doing what all organisations are doing. Most of us are elderly, and we can’t take the risk of infection of the corona virus.

And after an informal Committee meeting we are still no further ahead. When we get the all clear from the Club at Chester Hill we will let everyone know. In the mean time, most Thursdays and Friday mornings one of the Committee is in the office for a few hours. Besides that, Hong is back to make decent meals.

I hope we all pull through it to the end.
