USCQ Presidents

Image: Lieutenant Colonel A Sutton CB,CMG,VD

On its foundation in 1892 the Presidency of the Club alternated between the Naval and Army
heads of service in Queensland. Rule changes resulted in election of the President in 1910
by the Members – the first being Lieutenant Colonel A. SUTTON CB, CMG, VD.

Since then, Presidents have been drawn from a wide range of military rank and experience
from the three Services and are elected annually and now generally serve a two-year term.

71 individuals have been President of the Club by 2020.
