A group of World War II veterans will reunite at Longford for what may be the last time in April.
The 12/50th Battalion, also known as the Launceston regiment, has held annual reunions since 1967, however the battalion is down to its last three members.
“When they first started the reunion [the veterans] said, ‘we’ll keep running them until the last man is standing’,” event organiser Doug Wyatt OAM said.
“I think this might be the last one.”
Mr Wyatt’s father was a sergeant in the battalion, which was stationed in Launceston for much of the war before being shifted to a base near Darwin in 1943.
He will attend the reunion at The Country Club Hotel, Longford, along with 10 other family members of deceased veterans.
