NEW SOUTH WALES (NSW)

Throughout the past year, we have experienced some truly fantastic gatherings that have brought our members closer than ever before. The camaraderie and spirit of our association were on full display, reinforcing the enduring bonds that were forged during our service in the Australian Special Air Service. These gatherings have allowed us to reminisce, share stories, and strengthen the friendships that have sustained us over the years.

One of the highlights of the year was our ANZAC Day event. I am delighted to report that we witnessed a remarkable turnout from our members, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to honouring and remembering the sacrifices of our fellow soldiers. It was heart-warming to see the community support and recognition that we received during this occasion.

As we reflect on the highs and lows of the past year, let us be reminded of the strength of our association. In times of joy, we come together to celebrate our shared experiences, and in tough times, we lean on one another for support.

2024 promises to be another busy year for the Association as we build upon our growth strategy, supporting those departing the regiment and settling in NSW and continue to support the families of those affected by serving our nation.

The NSW branch became an incorporated association in January 2023.

Our offices are located at the Dee Why RSL Sub Branch in the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
