The National Rental Affordability Scheme or NRAS was launched for the purpose of providing
assistance and funding to increase the supply of affordable rental dwellings, reduce rental
costs to low to mid income earners. Eligible tenants are determined on an income basis with
the service industries such as police, teachers and nurses targeted as potential tenants.
In 1990, I had not long turned 18 when I joined the
Army. I served in both Armoured Corp and then as a PTI.
Mid 1997 RMA helped me to buy my first investment
property. Over the next four years I bought three more
and was well on the way to securing my future.
In 2000 I was asked if I would get out of the Army
and work with RMA Property Group full time. Given my
passion for property and helping people it was an easy
choice. Since then I have helped hundreds of people...
from first time investors to experienced professionals
looking to grow their property portfolios.
As I have walked the path that you are currently on I
know what is involved, Let me help you and show you
how easy it can be.

THE memory of Cfn Beau Pridue remains strong
among his mates and fellow soldiers serving with the
International Stabilisation Force (ISF) in East Timor.
Cfn Pridue, who was killed in a vehicle crash in East
Timor on September 15 last year, has had a popular ISF rec-
reational area renamed in his honour.
Originally call the “Two-Can Bar”, the recreational space
was officially renamed the “Cfn Beau Pridue Bar” in a cer-
emony in Dili on January 20.
Cpl Terry Johns, who was a close mate of Cfn Pridue, said
the idea to rename the bar was inspired by the many memori-
als he had seen on the roads during his service in East Timor.
“There are many memorials on the roadsides here in East
Timor. I thought we could do something similar for Beau,
but was concerned it would be difficult to maintain so we
came up with the idea of rededicating the bar in his memory
instead,” Cpl Johns said.
“Everyone thought this was a great idea, so I arranged to
have my brother-in-law manufacture a neon sign and ship it
from Australia for the renaming.”
Following the official dedication by ISF commander Col
Luke Foster, Cfn Pridue’s mates and fellow ISF soldiers
toasted his memory and shared stories.
“Cfn Pridue was a positive, professional young soldier
who was well liked by all,” Col Foster said.
“It is fitting that a positive place that brings people togeth-
er should carry on his memory.”
It is planned that “Beau’s Bar” will one day return to
Australia as part of the 8CSSB collection of memorabilia.
Until then, Cpl Johns hopes the bar will serve as a fitting
tribute to the young soldier for all current and future serving
“Young Beau was very well liked and respected by all
those he served with,” Cpl Johns said.
“I am very proud to have known and served alongside
Although called the Cfn Beau Pridue Bar, the facility is
primarily a recreation area where deployed troops can watch
TV and relax.
