About us

The 4th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment Association, Queensland (4 RAR Assoc, Qld) was first formerly established at a meeting of former serving members of 4 RAR at Kelvin Grove Barracks, Brisbane in 1985.

Prior to this but commencing in 1974, Bluey Fryer organised former members to gather as near as possible to 01 February each year to celebrate the Battalion’s birthday and to maintain the brotherhood of warriors. At the Adelaide reunion in 1985, Brigadier the Honourable, David Thomson MC, the Regimental Sergeant Major of the Army, RSM (A) Wally Thompson OAM and other former serving members suggested the forming of an association. In 1985, Queensland formalized an association.
