Sub-Branch Signal January 2021

The latest Sub-Branch news from RSLWA dated 29 January 2021 has been received. 

The Signal details that our future leaders did their units proud, with a big turnout at RSLWA’s annual Australia Day and Cadet of the Year Awards.  Held for the first time at the new ANZAC House Veteran Central facility, the event saw two superstars of the veteran community recognised alongside the absolute finest from the ADF’s Cadets

It also details that the  RSLWA’s traditional ANZAC Day commemoration will go ahead this year, with only one change – the retention of last year’s much-loved Driveway Dawn Service.

What this means is that – barring another COVID breakout in WA – the traditional Dawn Service, Gunfire Breakfast, March and Commemorative Service return this year. And RSLWA has  decided to include the Driveway Dawn Service for the benefit of those who would like to commemorate at home
