RSL commemorations

Important dates

The Returned and Services League of NSW (RSL NSW) was formed in 1917. Its mission statement is to provide for the well-being, care, compensation and commemoration of serving and ex-serving Defence Force Personnel and their dependants and promote Government and Community awareness of the need for a stable and progressive Australia.

The RSL calendar of commemoration events offers important opportunities throughout the year to recognise those who have served our country in the armed forces.
