The Sherwood Indooroopilly RSL Sub-branch needs your help.

The RSL wants to honour Australia’s fallen from all wars, but at present the three local memorials at Indooroopilly, Graceville and Oxley recognise only World War I, World War II and four other conflicts.

The RSL is calling for help from the local community to decide on which Australian conflicts since 1860 should be commemorated on three local World War I Memorials.

There have been as many as 30 conflicts in which Australians have died since 1885 – or more if peacekeeping operations are counted individually.

So, which conflicts should be recognised to properly honour all Australians who have fallen in war?

If your family has ever lost anyone in war, or if you are just interested in Australia’s military history, please go to the Call for Community Input <http://www.sherwdipillyrsl.org.au/Memorials/Index.htm> on the Sherwood RSL website to find out more.

Have your say by 30 November, 2015:

This enthusiastic play group put on five performances a year. Visit their website via www.centenarytheatre.com.au  to view their current and upcoming performances, auditions, events and booking information.
