And special guests;
• Commander Andrew Burnett, Commanding Officer Naval Headquarters South Australia

This dinner will provide an unequalled opportunity to network with leaders of Federal and State Government, Defence Forces and industry, in a congenial location adjacent to the infrastructure development to support Australia’s latest Defence and shipbuilding contracts.
On behalf of the Semaphore and Port Adelaide Sub-branch of the RSL I sincerely hope you will be able to accept our invitation for you to share in celebrating this significant occasion, the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, and to assist with sponsoring the museum should you consider it appropriate.
