On 15 August 2021 we were unable to come together to commemorate
‘Victory in the Pacific Day’ and ‘Vietnam Veterans Day’.

 

The ongoing pandemic requires that we all stay home, and stay safe for the health and safety of our veterans and their families. We acknowledge how particularly difficult this time is for our veterans, as they are once again required to draw on their strong qualities of endurance, courage, ingenuity, good humour, mateship and resilience, to get through this ongoing difficult time.


To show our appreciation to Australia’s heroes past, present and future, Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Club and the

Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Sub Branch have proudly donated $10,000 to ‘Wounded Heroes Australia’,

in contribution toward the incredible work that they do in supporting our veterans and their families.

Stay safe everyone, by working together as a Community we will make a difference.

 

THE ODE OF REMEMBRANCE

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.
Lest we Forget.


The "Ode" is taken from Laurence Binyon's poem
"For the Fallen" 

"The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance"
