We are officially 100 years old as a Sub Branch.
It is an honour to be amongst one of the oldest RSL Sub Banches in Western Australia. The Sub Branch has served returning veterans who have served in conflicts including the Boer War, World Wars One and Two, Korea, Malaya Emergency, Borneo, Vietnam, Timor, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and other peacekeeping operations. The Victoria Park Sub Branch is also known as The Gurney Club Inc, in honour of Arthur Stanley ‘Stan’ Gurney VC. Stan Gurney was the recipient of a Victoria Cross for bravery in the Battle of Tel-El-Eisa, Egypt during World War Two.
To all our members both past and present it could not have been achieved without your dedication and commitment to honouring our purpose and objectives through all those years. We have seen a lot of changes through the 100 years but we have not forgotten our core business which is the welfare of our veterans, both past and current serving. We will continue to serve our veterans for as long as they may need us. Our delivery of service may have changed from 100 years ago but we are still committed to helping our veterans.
We were privileged to receive our 100 Year letter from Her Majesty the Queen and His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (retd) Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia. Click on the images below to open up the letters in a new window.
Thank you to all including all our veterans, supporters and members, you are part of our history and will continue for as long as we can.
