A Unique Opportunity

We will be pleased to welcome General Brian Peddle with Commissioner Rosalie Peddle and our own Territorial Leaders Commissioners Floyd & Tracey Tidd.

The Lunch is timed so that Retired Officers can also attend the afternoon session of the Christmas Gift concert that commences at 2.30pm in a nearby Auditorium.

Located in the newly designed Sovereign Room at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, this informal meal will allow you to catch up with friends from days gone by and also create new friendships. We encourage you to be part of this first national gathering of Retired Officers.

Attending Our Christmas Gift

Tickets for Our Christmas Gift can be purchased separately via the website thus allowing you to book with other family members, corps and friends.

Concession tickets are $15 each. Book tickets for Our Christmas Gift.



We’re taking expressions of interest for bus transfers for Retired Officers to attend specific Still Others events on Saturday 1st Dec, Sunday 2nd Dec and Monday 3rd Dec. Pick-up locations and times are to be confirmed and will be coordinated based on expressions of interest.
