    the memory of the Spitfire, an aircraft that set new standards in aviation technology, giving out founding members the means to achieve their objectives in theatres of war around the world; and

  • Connector.

    To support and grow...

    the Spitfire Memorial Defence Fellowship Scheme (administered by The University of NSW and the Australian Defence Force), in order to ensure that future generations of Australians have the opportunity to contribute excellent research in the area of defence.
