RSL in South Perth celebrates a century

On 26 November the local sub-branch of the Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL) celebrated 100 years of involvement in the South Perth area.

RSLWA members and other special guests attended to celebrate the occasion.

RSLWA chief executive officer John McCourt presented the local sub-branch with a certificate of recognition for its 100 years’ service and the significant contribution made by South Perth residents in all fields of conflict.

Remembrance Day 2015 “Lest We Forget”

Today I commemorated Remembrance Day with the City of South Perth and the Sub-Branch of the Returned and Services League in the City’s Memorial Gardens in South Perth.

I was honoured to lay a wreath to honour the many lives lost in battle and pay tribute to all Australians who have served our great nation.

Thank you to the City, Mayor Sue Doherty, MC Kevin Trent, the St Colomba Primary School singers and all others involved for such a heartfelt service
