On 11 March 1987, Peter John Cutler, a former member of the Club (6 September 1983 to 30 April 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 title of the award is the “CPL PETER CUTLER MEMORIAL TROPHY”.
The first contest for the “Trophy” was at the Club’s annual Scale Rally, held on 21 June 1987. The name of the event was subsequently changed to the Peter Cutler Memorial Scale Day and conducted under that title on 3 July 1988.
