suit our young Joeys, others especially for older

Scouts and Venturers, and still others that will need

● You might like to make or bring a costume item that

fits our theme ‘Fairy Tales gone Wrong!’ but be

Hello David,

My name is Joel and I am an Air Force Officer currently based in the Middle East on Operation Okra.

My unit recently received a care package from the 1st Belmont Joey Scouts. I wish to thank you, your team, and all of the Joey Scouts for the fantastic package and letter. 

We received it on ANZAC Day, which put a great smile on my face.

Thank you all once again. Your support means a lot to the Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen working around the Middle East.

Kind regards,
Flying Officer (O2)
Middle East Region
