Membership Application

Application for General Membership.


In response to the significant amount of requests that have been and continue to be received in regard to joining, The Association is pleased to announce, that a Special Resolution was unanimously carried at the RCMPA’s General Meeting on 12 January 2017 for the Association’s Constitution to be changed to create a second category of membership.

As a result, the new Constitution now provides for General (Non-Voting) Membership of the Association. The current membership fee is $20 per annum, with memberships being due for renewal on 1 June each year.

The Association is delighted that it can now offer veterans, their families and descendants, supporters, sponsors and the community, the opportunity to be part of the exciting project to establish an interactive memorial flying boat museum on the site of former RAAF Base Rathmines. The museum will facilitate the display of the remarkable amount of memorabilia and artefacts that have been donated, for which the Association is custodian, with the Catalina flying boat that is currently undergoing restoration by an enthusiastic team of dedicated volunteers, to be the static centrepiece of the display.

The museum will be a perpetual tribute to the personnel who served at Rathmines and emphasise the pivotal role they, and the seaplanes, most notably the iconic Catalina flying boats, played in the defence of Australia during WW2.
