The 2020 Australian Army Band Corps Association Award recipient is CPL Jacob Curro of AAB Kapooka - Citation
Vale - Mick Knight, MBE
(1 Nov 2020)
Word was received today that former WO1 instructor and later OC at the Army School of Music at Balcombe sadly passed away on the afternoon of Sunday, 22 October 2020 in Frankston Hospital.
Many who went through Balcombe as band boys and Army apprentice musicians as well as course members who attended the School would remember Mick. He left the Army in 1969 or 1970.
His only son Glenn advised that Mick's wife, Marj is living in a nursing home and he wrote that it is unlikely that a funeral will be held for Mick.
As further information comes to hand it will be posted onto this site.
On behalf of the President and members of the AABC Association we pass on our heartfelt condolences to wife Marj and the extended family.
RIP.... Your duty done

Noteworthy - The Association's Newsletter
Due to the rising costs to produce the Associations Newsletter it was decided at the 2016 AGM that the association would send out the next and consequent Newsletters (Anzac & Corps Birthday editions) electronically (via Email) to our members. We acknowledge that not everyone of our members have access to Email or doesn't even have a computer, and those members will be sent the Newsletter by mail.
Dave Oakley, our Database Manager has forwarded a 'test' Email to those members who have provided an Email address together with their details to confirm that the members Email address is correct. Those members without an Email address will be sent the Newsletter by mail.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
