Hooo eee, what a thread! Fantastic effort by all concerned!

Ok, now would you be interested in supplying the coordinates of the Memorial for the purpose of "Waymarking".

Dunno if you know about geocaching where you use your GPSr to find "caches" hidden around the countryside http://www.geocaching.com/ , but there are/were a number of forumites involved. A subset of geocaching is Waymarking where GPSr co-ords are used to identify objects of interest around the world. This memorial would be eminently suited to the WW2 memorials category
http://www.waymarking.com/cat/details.a ... &ct=3&st=2
(hopefully this link will show WW2 memorials in Victoria currently listed). I am an "officer" in this category which means I assist in review and publishing of submitted waymarks in this category, although in reality a very keen officer of the category gets in to review before I do!

Membership is free so if you not a cacher, you can readily join and submit this very significant memorial. If that option doesn't appeal, perhaps a mate who is a cacher might be able to submit for you, or even maybe I can submit it if you can supply the co-ords of the memorial (and engine if possible) with of course due acknowledgement to your efforts (a link wouldn't go astray!). I'll leave the idea with you - PM us if you want to.

Is the RAAF Museum at Point Cook involved?

Momuments over here have been stolen for there scrap value others have been let go to rack and ruin a sad state of affairs although there has now been a public out cry. For their restoration A common bond are young men stood up for us the least we can do is give their memory the respect they deserve no matter were they fell. WE SHALL REMEMBER THEM
