Keeping in Touch
Welcome to your October edition 

This month Australian Hearing celebrates Veterans’ Heath Week across the country. Between October 21 and 29 veterans, war widows, widowers, current and ex-Australian Defence Force members and their families are encouraged to improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of themselves and their friends. 

In this issue, we take a look at Australian Hearing’s history with veterans, catch up with one of our veterans, look at how to fix the most common hearing aids problems, and find out the winners of our Father’s Day competition.
Australian Hearing’s history with veterans

Australian Hearing’s long and important relationship with veterans dates back 70 years.

Veterans have been part of the Australian Hearing story since the beginning. Have a read of how the relationship started.

Harry Allie’s Amazing Story 

Royal Australian Air Force veteran Harry Allie’s hearing has made a comeback in his twilight years. When his hearing started to decline, Harry became very frustrated.

He had problems hearing high tones and pitches but was able to fix it with the help of hearing aids. He talks about his experiences in this video.

Post Fathers’ Day Story Winner

In last month’s issue we celebrated fathers and other male role models with a competition and are thrilled to not only announce the winner but share some of our favourite entries.

Five fathers (pictured) from Australian Hearing had the hard task of going through all the entries and deciding the winner. With the top five favourites selected, the winning Father’s Day Dadvice was from Keith Hateley from New South Wales.

Winner: The best advice my father gave to me was just before I got married and they went something like this:

“There are only two words that you need to know for a happy marriage and they are “YES DEAR”

Probationary Chapters

Proposed new Chapters are required to have a minimum number of Members (7), an Application for a new Chapter will only be processed where the minimal number of Members has been achieved. Members may be drawn from any existing Chapter or Chapter nominees to be made up after the Chapter is formed. During the probationary period they cannot mentor new Probationary Chapters. They must also prove that they can abide by the rules and ethos of the Club prior to being granted their Charter (Nat Constitution 15).


There has been keen interest from ex Military motorcyclists to re-establish the Tasmanian Chapter of PAMMC. If you are an Ex Patriot & had to resign when the old Chapter closed down, here is an opportunity to rejoin & experience the camaraderie you enjoyed before. Please contact the National Secretary at natsec01@patriots-australia.com for further details.

About Us

The Patriots are a motorcycle club for regular, reserve and ex-serving members of the defence force (Army, Navy and Air Force) Patriots Australia has been around since 1993 and were established because at one time or another, most of us would have liked to join an established club, but found that due to constant postings, this became difficult to achieve.
