The Nationals Member for Gippsland Darren Chester caught up with former Lakes Entrance local Robert Scott, who is now a member of the Air Force Band playing clarinet.
The Air Force Band is a world-class military band, which represents the Royal Australian Air Force at a wide variety of public and private events in Australia and overseas.
Robert is a former Lakes Entrance Secondary College student who studied at the Australian National University in Canberra and later in Versailles, France.
Robert was in Gippsland at the weekend and met Mr Chester at the official unveiling of the replica FE2b, an aircraft that flew from Yarram in 1918 in search of the German surface raider SMS Wolf.
The replica has been built by students from Yarram Secondary College with a grant from the Federal Government’s Saluting Their Service Program
