The Donnybrook sub branch of the RSL has been granted $2,000 to purchase and install and new display cabinet for its’ First World War memorabilia.
The Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino congratulated the Donnybrook sub branch on being a successful applicant for a commemorative project under the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program.
“These projects will help highlight the many stories that exist in and around the South West about the service and sacrifice of our servicemen and women during the First World War,” Mrs Marino said.
“The grants assist the community to find out more about their local servicemen and women, and to understand that the freedoms we enjoy today, in many instances, came at the highest price.”
“This display will support the ongoing work of the Donnybrook RSL, which has also just completed a fantastic renovation of the Donnybrook War memorial.”
The Centenary of Anzac will mark a Century of Service, encompassing all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australians have been involved.
“It will be the most significant period of commemoration in our nation’s history and the Coalition Government is committed to providing opportunities for all Australians to participate,” Mrs Marino said.
