The Ode

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,

Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow,

They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,

They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

 

Today’s RSL is very different to what it was many years ago.Today there are veterans from many conflicts, peacekeeping duties and even service during peacetime.

 

Community

Provide a community for serving and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force.
Members come from conflicts in various eras where Australia has sent her troops along with those who have served during Peace-time.

Peer Health

There are numerous ways to get fit and involved for better health with your peers. There is a Walking group that meets every Wednesday and Friday at 9am at the southern Hillarys Boat Harbour car park. At 8am on Wednesdays and Fridays the brave Kayakers take on the sea in all weather. They meet at the Hillarys Yacht Club car park. There is also those who prefer two wheels under their own steam. They meet on Fridays.

Advocacy & Welfare

We have a dedicated volunteer group of members who visit their peers when they are not doing so well. Also have DVA Advocates to help with the all important submissions for injury or ill health caused by service in the Australian Defence Force

2019 4x4 Outback Tour ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

This years 4x4 Tour started their adventure at the Gin Gin bakery where 7 intreped travellers set off in 4 vehicles heading 1st to New Norcia then up through Three Springs (ask Colin Benporath for site seeing tips around town) then on to Coalseam for a look around heading further north we stopped at Mullewa to have a look at the rare Wreath Flowers ( I must say I was impressed never seeing these lovely plants before ).Refueling @ Murchinson we where invited to look at there Museum with great displays from around the area after we payed our respects at RSL Memorial each war is marked with a large red rock a very fitting memorial for the area. We then drove the Wool Wagon Track stopping in to see the Old Wool Shed a very impressive building. It was starting to warm up so Stuey Leake suggested a dip at Bilung Pool a beautiful tree lined pool in the middle of the harsh rocks & red dirt a great spot for a cold beer and sit under a shadey tree then it was on to Mt Augustus the Biggest Rock in the World and a hot shower at the caravan site after camping rough till now. The Rock was too big a challenge for Stuey Leake , Stewy Davies & Vern our civvey mate to pass up so first light saw the boys heading off with Bruce McDowell as their driver to conquer the rock Colin B, Glen George and myself watched on from our swags and waited for a civilized time to venture out the boys achieved their goal in good time surprizing some younger climbers so well done those men, after looking at various trails around the Rock we all headed to Cattle Pool another Beautiful spot in this harsh dry land the pool is spring fed with fish birds & wild life everywhere it soon had all members in it as well very refreshing followed by a cold beer. We further explored the rock for two days then on the Saturday drove down to Landor Races an annual event that has run for 98 years with only bush horses allowed to enter there was over a 1000 people camped up if you drove passed Landor 350 days of the year you'd only see a Bungarra or two but for these 5 days its like a city and so well organized with ablution blocks hot running water Restaurant complete with Chandliers not to mention a big Bar. We arrived in time to watch the Saturday Races ( I did pick the winner of the cup ) that night they had the Landor Ball which was a lot of fun some great outfits they had Crown & Anchor plus Two Up in the Bar (so I would like to thank them for sponsoring my trip to Landor ) on the Sunday was the Gymkhana with the little tots starting the day followed by the adults showing their skills which had the boys glued to their seats to end the day they had foot races & Tugs of War. Monday Colin & Vern took of to Meekathra for a spot of Gold prospecting & saw us head for the Gasgoyne Junction & the Kennedy Rangers which are breathtaking after setting up camp we explored the gorges the Honeycomb Gorge blew our minds never before have I seen anything like it after a good nights sleep we awoke early to watch the Sunrise again we where impressed after breakfast it was on the road again this time to Wooramel Hot Springs & a good soak to try & get the red dirt out of our pours the spring are at a constant 34c very relaxing with a cold beer. This was the end of the run for the rest of the crew as they headed back to Perth having a couple of days up my sleeve I headed to Monkey Mia for a Seachange for a night then to Geraldton to buy a few prezzies for the wife I think it worked I'll see next year if I'm allowed roll my tyres down the road with a great bunch of mates. Thank you to Glenn George my co-pilot Bruce McDowell for starting the plan to Stuey & Stewy Colin B & Vern for making this a great adventure and for you Camaraderie. Cheers Jonny Mc

Nice photos mate. Was great to meet you guys. Had lots of laughs. Paul & Toni 🍻

Was a great trip, even with a visit to Three Springs Hospital. These trips do not cost the earth and are damned good therapy. Would do a lot of grumpy people the world of good.

Sooo jealous. Looks like a fantastic trip- wild men out in the wild 🤣 x

Jon remember some of us can’t do these things re being on special medications and may need quick hospitalisation and not all have the money
