Mike Barham

Mike will talk about his father’s wartime career. Group Captain J.R.D. 'Bob' Braham was an RAF Night Fighter Pilot. His decorations include: DSO, DFC, AFC, CD, Belgian Order Of the Crown with Palm, Belgian Croix de Guerre 1940 with Palm.

By the time he resigned from the RCAF, he had flown a total of 5,370 hours in the RAF and RCAF and had flown 66 types of aircraft starting with the biplanes of the late 1930's with a top speed of 180 mph and finished flying such aircraft as the English Electric Lightning with a speed of Mach 2.1, 1,390 mph.


December 14th
Christmas Party

Continuing our recent custom, we have brought our Annual Christmas Party forward by two weeks.

We have arranged a return visit by The Madrigals and, of course, the massed voices of the Alta Vista Probus Club Choir will join in.

Catering will be by members. For the details, please see the October Probe or the November Flyer.

Check out the 'Spring Fling' page (changed 1 November 2016)

We are a 'Combined' Club. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December - 2nd Wednesday). Meetings begin at 10:00 with a few minutes of announcements and then a speaker. Members start to arrive about 9:30 for coffee, cookies and chat (tea, Tim-bits and talk).

Meetings are at:

Gloucester Presbyterian Church
91 Pike Street

Pike Street runs north from Hunt Club just west of Conroy. The church is at the corner of Lorry Greenberg and Pike. Parking lot entrances are off Pike.

 PROBUS' Vital Purpose …

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.

Guests and Visitors from other Clubs are welcome.
