About the Lysle Roberts Memorial Luncheon series

Lysle Roberts was a RAAF 457 SQN Spitfire Pilot during WWII. His service on behalf of the Spitfire Association included lifetime Vice President and many dedicated years helping to build our Spitfire Memorial Defence Fellowship.

The fellowship allocates funds and Fellowships to bring step-change improvements to the security of Australia. The contemporary Spitfire Association carries the Fellowship into a new and exciting future, as we broaden our mission to support the resilience of Australia. Through this luncheon series, hear from outstanding Australians leading strategic change in their respective fields, as they outline the way ahead for Australia, into the future.

Dress: Business Casual

Cost: $125 per head; $1200 for a table of 10

What’s included?

  • Entry to a 3-course dinner
  • Keynote speakers
  • The opportunity to be part of history and make your contribution to helping Australia remain resilient.

We look forward to you joining us in Canberra to discuss key issues affecting Australia's strategic environment, and remember the gallant efforts of our RAAF Spitfire pilots and support crews. The vision of the Spitfire Memorial Defence Fellowship and its founders from 457 Squadron, remains as relevant today as ever. We honour their foresight and work to “Carry the Spirit Forward”.
