Possums AWOL
Welcome to the 161 Possums Website

This web site was originally created by Matthew Hoare back in 1999 on behalf of the members of 161 Recce Association. The site is now under the management of Russ Graham, assisted by Len Avery. 

The purpose of this web site is to not only preserve the history of 161 Recce Flt and 161 Recce Sqn, but also to provide an insight into the function of the 161 Recce Association.

The web site also provides an avenue for those who have served in the Recce Flight or the Squadron to maintain contact with those they served with and the opportunity to follow the progress of the current 161 Recce Sqn.

Sections of the 161 Collection are currently on display in the Museum of Australian Army Flying (MAAF), along with samples of all the aircraft that the Flight operated in Vietnam. Eventually, all of the 161 History and Collection will be held and displayed in the Museum.

Whilst all care has been taken to ensure that the information contained in this web site is accurate, it remains subject to amendment. We welcome any assistance that may improve the accuracy and content of the web site.
