RSL Virtual War Memorial
The RSL Virtual War Memorial is an outstanding commemorative collection, purpose built by RSL-SA to honour the personal experiences of all those who have served the nation in times of conflict. It pays special honour to those who lost their lives as a result of their service and equally honours those who returned, forever changed, many of whom have been pivotal to the RSL story over the last 100 years.
"The only memorial which could be worthy of them was the bare uncoloured story of their part in the war." CEW Bean
