Peter Cutler Memorial Trophy

About Corporal Peter Cutler Memorial Trophy

On 11 March 1987, Peter John Cutler, a former member of the Club (1983 – 1986), was killed during an army exercise. He was 29 years of age. At the time of his death he was a member of No. 1 Signal Regiment, stationed at Enoggera Army Base, and was transmitting a message from the enclosed rear compartment of a Landrover when the driver misjudged a turn, and the vehicle rolled upside down into a ditch. The driver and another passenger escaped uninjured.

Peter was, for a number of years, a keen scale modeller and a member of the Wagga Model Aero Club before his posting to Brisbane. To perpetuate his memory his wife Brenda, children Rebecca and Matthew, parents Athol and Marie, and brothers Stephen and Gregory donated trophies to the Wagga and Tingalpa Clubs to be contested in scale competition.

The trophy is awarded for the best scale model at the Club’s Scalefest held in June each year. Only a photo of a proto-typical type and a 3-view are required for documentation but the model must [at the chief Judge’s discretion] fly on the day. The Trophy can only be won by a TMAC member.
