As president of the Inverloch RSL Sub-branch it is with regret that I again need to advise that, in line with government guidelines addressing the COVID-19 threat, there will no public event for the commemoration of Victory in the Pacific (VP Day), on August 15 or Vietnam Veterans Day August 18.
We had planned to hold a small ceremony at the cenotaph in Inverloch to acknowledge those days.
It is unfortunate that we are unable to make a public recognition to honour the sacrifices that were made in those campaigns. To lose the opportunity to celebrate the day through an ‘enemy’ we cannot see is most heart breaking.
Rest assured that the Inverloch RSL Sub-branch will continue to provide support to our veterans during this period and look forward to celebrating our next major memorial event, Remembrance Day on the 11th of November. I look forward to engaging once again with the Inverloch Community.
Lest We Forget, Bob Sutton, President, Inverloch Sub-Branch.
