OGBH RSL Sub-branch NEWS

The Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL Sub-branch is pleased to announce that the additions to the Memorial in the Ocean Grove Park are now complete and we encourage members of the Community to come to the park and visit the Walls.
The additions comprise of three walls (1 main wall and 2 wings), honouring the names of all those who have served in the Australian Defence Force from WW1 to current conflicts. The criteria for name selection is: was born in, enlisted from or on discharge returned and lived in the Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads or Connewarre Districts.
If anyone finds that a relative or friend’s name is missing, please let the Sub-branch know, and if after research the name is approved, it will be added to the Walls in the correct category. The cut-off date for this year is 31 July 2020. Any names will be added prior to Remembrance Day, contact John Dickinson on dingopc@bigpond.com for any assistance. The RSL will conduct this exercise on an annual basis.
 When current restrictions have been eased the RSL is planning an open day for the Walls an including afternoon tea.

The sub-branch have a Facebook page named “Bellarine Young Veterans” and we encourage all young veterans (Post Vietnam), on the peninsula to check it out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2087214987990073/
