History

This History page is organised in reverse chronological order (recent history at the top, older history further down the page). It starts with the most recent tour to Timor Leste in 2018. Previous tours to Cuba in 2013 and 2009 will be appended if there is enough interest.

The Timor Leste trip started with a scouting expedition by Fran to the Baucau Peace Festival in 2016.

Practice weekends were started in August and November 2017 and thence monthly from February 2018 until August. We presented a trial run of some of our songs in Canberra in May to commemorate the Restoration of Independence in Timor Leste in 2002.
