President’s Message

Welcome to our updated website.

Photographs have now been added to the site. Look under the sub-Branch heading.  You will note that our Facebook page now appears on the right-hand side of the Home Page.  It will contain the Latest News and is therefore available on both sites.  Check the Facebook page for details on our next bus trip.  Closing date is our October Meeting.

As you are all aware, changes are happening within the RSL.  A new draft Constitution is being discussed and we hope the final draft will be with us in early November, which will allow us to time review it before the Extra-ordinary Congress in December.

Our meetings are averaging about 55 in attendance which is 52% of our Membership.  For those who are not attending, come along and join in with the camaraderie. It is always good to meet up with old friends and to make new ones.

We are only a phone call away if you need any assistance or welfare.  Please contact one of the welfare officers.

Ron Duckworth
President

WOMEN AT WAR by Bill Charlton

They often go unheralded though they too did their time.
Alongside the soldiers in the front line.
These are the women who served as nurses and more.
With their lives in great danger when they went to war.

There were the nurses in aid stations close to the front.
Who suffered from the shelling as they took the brunt.
The sight of the injuries of the wounded and the dying.
Would have lesser folk weeping and crying.

But they stood by their posts and performed their job well.
In conditions described as a real living hell.
They tended the wounded, and nursed the maimed.
Their expertise was appreciated and they were well-trained.

Some volunteered as spies, and were flown in France.
A role fraught with peril but they still took their chance.
So many brave women answered the call.
They also made sacrifices and many would fall.

Our women also served in World War Two.
There were so many roles that they now could do.
In every field our women were present.
Many nurses were held in Japanese prisons.

Raped and tortured their prospects looked dim.
But they had great courage, and fight still within.
Many survived the war and told their tales,
Of the suffering experienced in the enemy gaols.

Even today our servicewomen excel.
They hold key positions and they do their job well.
In the Army, the Navy and the Air Force they shine.
We salute all these women who serve in the front line!

Gary thank you for posting here - Dad would have been honored. Although very emotional, I really enjoyed the service and will continue to wear Dad's medals in his honor at each of the Bass Hill RSL Sub Branch events.
