Our Mission Statement

The Spitfire Association was formed in Sydney, Australia, in 1960.
The Association has three principal purposes:

  • To commemorate...

    through ANZAC Day and other special events, the extraordinary actions of our members who served in wartime to defend and continue our democracy and freedoms;

  • To keep alive...

    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

  • 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.
