Recently HAMST members assisted with a military model exhibition at the Sorell Lodge Hall. This is the second annual event and although from small beginnings it is continuing to grow each year.

                                           HAMST 2023 Christmas Dinner 

Last night over 40 members & family attended the annual HAMST Christmas Dinner at the clubrooms. Once again it was a fantastic night to catch up and reminisce 2023 as we all look forward to the Christmas break.  This years theme was "Italian" with Vinny and our ladies working tirelessly to ensure a great Italian meal, superb clubroom decorations, heaps of prizes giveaways and laughs during the evening. The president presented a PP depicting member photos and all we have achieved during the year. As we look forward to 2024 the President and Committee would like to express their sincere thanks to members for all their support, and wish them a safe and happy Christmas with family & friends.                             


                                            Remembrance Day 2023   
Once again it was a privilege for HAMST members to attend and support the RSL Hobart Remembrance Day Memorial Ceremony.  Members of our re-enactment groups provided precision firing of the 25lb gun during the ceremony. They were supported by our Women at War Nurses and the President who presented wreaths during the service. The service was well attended by the community and it was a pleasure and an honour to be part of this important event.                                    

                                            HAMST Military History Fair 2023   
Last weekend the society held its annual Military History Fair. Once again it was a fantastic weekend to connect with like minded clubs and the general public; to catch up with friends and make new ones. This year we were supported by many military history groups from around Tasmania as they displayed a variety of interesting stalls, displays and events. It was also encouraging to be supported by ABC radio who conducted a live stream on Sunday. From the efforts and enthusiasm of all who attended, the Society is already planning for 2024 with the focus on living history to remind us of the incredible sacrifices over those times. Hope to see you all in 2024.
