Craftsman : Craftsman 2012
RAEME CRAFTSMAN 2012 have not appeared in other publications; will be of interest to the reading audience; and lend themselves to detailed captions and or linking to narrative. Should a person providing the submission feel uncomfortable writing the story, or have difficulty writing in an agreed style, the services of the CHP Editor will be provided. The book is to include contributions from all members of the Corps, full and part time, and AEME and RAEME service personnel regardless of gender, origins, or rank, contributions will also be welcomed from non-members of the Corps who have a story about the Corps, which they think should be shared. Detailed Guidelines for Contributors This project provides a wonderful opportunity to record individuals' experiences, or those of their mates and colleagues. The aim is to seek these contributions in the form of short stories, supported by supported by good quality black and white or coloured photographs. Therefore writers should not be constrained from presenting their stories in their own style, but the editorial board reserves the right to "standardise" the style of storytelling throughout the publication. A template to enable a standardised format for contributions will be provided on the national Associations and HOC websites. Writers may chose to draft a complete story, or provide a dot point outline from which a story may be created. In either event, contributors will be asked to observe the following broad guidelines: Identify and explain the situation depicted in the photograph: • Where the activity occurred • In what operation, exercise or setting did the activity depicted occur? • Identify any equipment, (aircraft, vehicle, plant or watercraft) or weapon(s) depicted in the photograph. • Identify the degree of danger and/or technical and practical difficulty involved in the situation. • Explain the outcome of the situation and what happened immediately after the situation depicted in the photograph. Identify (name and rank) the soldiers depicted in the photograph. Also include as much background information on each soldier as possible. For example: The specific role of each soldier in the activity shown. • How long each soldier had been in the Army at the time of the activity depicted. • Did the soldier start with RAEME as an apprentice or was he or she an adult trainee or entered the Corps by another means. • Did the soldier commence his/her career in another Corps and if so which one? • What happened to them after the depicted situation ended? • Are they still serving or what civilian occupation did they go to after discharge/retirement? • What rank did each soldier attain during his/her service? • Any amusing anecdote regarding any of the soldiers depicted during their time with the unit. • Were any of the soldiers renowned for any particular skill/activity (E.G. Service representative in sport)? This information should be provided as an addition to the information provided to support the photograph. Conclusion The history of the Army is resplendent with stories of the 'warfighters' but few if any recognise the contribution of the logistic corps, including RAEME. The CHP provides an opportunity to address this in a way that also captures the history of the Corps by exploring both personnel and unit experiences in both peace and war. The format of the publication as a pictorial memoir is intended to widen the appeal and subsequent audience of the publication thereby perpetuating the reputation of RAEME as key contributor to the success of the Australian Army and the Australian Defence Force over the past 70 years. 27 RAEME Craftsman Port 2012 Commemorating the Corps 70th Anniversary (1942 -- 2012) This year ’s RAEME Craftsman Port is a delicious White Port from the well renowned Stanton and Killeen winery found in the respectable Rutherglen wine region.
