Australian Air Defence Artillery Association
A bond never forgotten
Connecting serving and former members of Air Defence Artillery Units and Searchlight Units
The Australian Air Defence Artillery Association is a not-for-profit organisation founded to foster a brotherhood of camaraderie for serving and former members of the military that are or have served, in an Air Defence Artillery Unit or Searchlight Units.
The Association works closely with 16 Regiment and provides mutual support to our members through connections with old mates. We provide representation and raise the issues of members, organise reunions and promote the interest of members.
Keeping our past close.
