Place your name for posterity at the 4 RAR Museum

Plaque Application Form

To survive the Museum Foundation needs to raise funds to help run and improve the presentation of the exhibits within the museum.  The proposal is to sell a space in the Museum to ex-serving personnel who have served with 4 RAR, 2/4 RAR or  4 RAR (Commando).  The plate would be in the form of a Dog Tag and inscribed with the members regimental details and service details then mounted on a board in the Museum.  The expected cost of individual inscriptions for ex-members is expected to be $50.00.  An example of the name tag is shown below.                       

People who have purchased dog tags so far (Many thanks to you all)
