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 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 Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL Sub-branch is pleased to announce
that the Ocean Grove Honour Wall and Wings are now completed and on display in the Ocean Grove Park.
When the current Health Crisis is over and it is safe to do so, the Sub-Branch would encourage the Community and members to view the upgraded Memorial. 
If some-one feels they have a relative who has been overlooked, the RSL Sub-Branch is happy to research any information provided prior to 1 July 2020, and if found to be eligible will add the details to the Memorial in the correct category in time for ANZAC Day 2021. This will be the timeline to add additional names to the Honour Walls in future years as well.
