Sub-Branch Newsletter

There has been much negative press lately about the League and allegations of misappropriations of funds and payment of consultancy fee’s.  The advice I have received it that no law has been broken and I am eagerly awaiting the official findings of the recent forensic audit.  Our sub Branch stands behind the incumbent State President, Mr John Haines AM and the work he and State Council are doing to deliver our mission of providing welfare to current and former members of the Australian Defence Force and their families.

One of our sub Branch members, Mr Mike Perrott RAN retired, in 1969 along with a fellow pilot Mr Bob Kyle (both sub lieutenants at the time) flew their helicopter through heavy gunfire to land and pick up two fellow pilots that had been shot down and repelling the enemy with the M60 machine gun of their downed Iroquois helicopter.  Mike is currently being considered for a bravery award for his actions on that day.

Our ANZAC Sunday service will be held on Sunday April 23rd members and well-wishers are requested to be outside Club Five Dock RSL at 10am.

Important dates: Members Luncheons Friday June 23rd, Friday 22nd September and Friday 1st December commencing at midday.  Have Facebook? Like us at Five Dock RSL Sub Branch for notices and updates.
