|Sponsor – Pat English (24th Intake)|
Pat English answered our call to help fund Project SPAASSM with a sizable donation. Thanks Pat!!!
|Sponsor – Ex Chief of Army|
Chief of Army (LTGEN Peter Leahy, AC) is a major sponsor to Project SPAASSM. This has allowed us to engage commercial suppliers in preserving and digitising the collection. Without CA’s sponsorship and the help of Mr. Ben Hayes from the CA’s office, the Project would have been extra tough. We are extremely grateful for this assistance. Thanks!!
|Special Thanks – Chief of Army – Our Patron (23rd Intake)|
LtGen Ken Gillespie, AO, DSC, CSM has assisted SPAASSM in facilitating dialogue with Defence Senior Management in the progression of the Project. His assistance in this regard is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

SPAASSM would not have been born if it had not been for the considerations of Major Graham Docksey, OAM of the Army Museum Bandiana. The Museum, through Apprentice Volunteers such as Jim Hislop, has created a great Apprentice Display.
