- 105 – RAN BAND NEWS EDITION NUMBER 1 10 FEBRUARY 2003 THE WIND ORCHESTRA DURING A NATIONAL BROADCAST FROM NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY IN 2003 WELCOME FROM THE DIRECTOR’S DESK Welcome to the first edition of the RAN Band News. I hope that this twice-yearly publication will prove a useful way for all of us to keep in touch, as well as becoming another medium in which to provide category specific information. I would like to commence by stating that I am fortunate to have the privilege of leading the Royal Australian Navy Band—one of Australia’s premier military ensembles, and I am grateful to my predecessor, Commander Ashley Greedy AM RAN for the excellent shape that the band was in when I assumed my watch last July. Commander Greedy dedicated most of his working career to the Royal Australian Navy. His achievements were acknowledged in 1993 by an award in the Member in the Military Division of the Australian Honours and Awards, and by a Chief of Navy Commendation last year. It was humbling to witness the generous level of personal acknowledgment given Commander Greedy during his farewell visits to each detachment. Commander Greedy is now enjoying the 19 th hole on Norfolk Island and, on behalf of the Musician Category, I formally thank him for his tremendous contribution. There has been much change during the previous seven-month period. This change was foreshadowed in our Category Management Plan and began to gather pace as our people regained their sea legs and commenced short deployments to sea. During the course of this financial year, almost thirty percent of the category would have enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time at sea. Some interesting stories are contained in this first edition, which gives some insight to the sea-ride in HMAS Kanimbla and deployment to North East Asia in HMAS Sydney. Currently, four members are embarked in HMAS Kanimbla as flight deck teams, and other opportunities are being explored to embark elements of the band in HMAS Adelaide, HMAS Success, and HMAS Manoora.
