Proposed Commemorative Trip to Myanmar and Thailand

Added on by 2/29 Battalion.

A few of us are visiting Burma this year to commemorate the 75th

Anniversary of the running of the Tavoy Melbourne Cup

on November 2nd 2017

Some members of the 2/29th were sent as POW's to Burma as part of A FORCE. We have at least two members of the Association whose fathers were in Tavoy at that time and Loris Fletcher does have in her possession the actual cup won by her father Wif Muir. Ron Lovett's father was the winning owner.

Some of us are planning to go to Burma in November and we still have some places available. See the attached itinerary (below) and costs for the Burma. Following Burma a fewer number were planning to break the trip in Thailand on the way home and do a run along the Railway to Three Pagoda pass and that is the second itinerary and we have places available on that section. If we get the required numbers from the Burma trip to stop over it may be the short itinerary as outlined, if however you were wanting to have time in Bangkok either going or returning home, and provided we have numbers we will change the itinerary to accommodate that.
