Hutt River (Clare) Probus enjoyed hearing from guest speaker Peter Newman who is Principal Technical Officer - Combat Systems Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance.
At their April meeting, held in the Barbara J Long Room, the group started with new President Fred Adams opening the meeting, the Probus song and one minute silence in honour of Anzac Day.
Reports and raffle draw followed before morning tea and the guest speaker.
Mr Newman provided a most interesting presentation on the topic of Australia's Naval Defence Systems based in Adelaide. He showed several videos of the frigates being built.
Mr Newman said it was something he was passionate about, with all of this happening in Adelaide - almost in our own backyard and we don't realise.
Mr Newman was thanked by Barry Budarick for an exhilarating and highly professional presentation.
