Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 25 April, 2012 - 8:44 AM
SAS widows have been snubbed by the RSL at this years dawn service ceremony.

The widows of SAS soldiers killed in Afghanistan were denied the chance to lay a wreath by the RSL during this year's dawn service ceremony. Paul Murray spoke to Dave Lewis, National President of the SAS Association, who was angered by the snub.

Blog comments Your Say

  • I add my voice in broad support of other opinions already expressed here. Anzac day is a sombre time for many of us, and it is about remembering those who have sacrificed themselves in defence of their nation Australia. I do not hold an elitist view on who should be acknowledged in this way. My anger at this is not that they are SAS or even combative corps personnel, although please note that as a former infantryman I hold the Australian SAS in the highest of regard!!!!. SAS soldiers have died in service to their country and it is right and proper to remember and acknowledge them, as it is for other myriad types of service, flavours of suffering, and those killed in deployment and or on training exercises or from illness whilst in service. Anzac day is for all of those people, and for all Australians to allow ourselves an emotional connection to their memory/spirit. Dingo

  • When will the media, including 6PR, stop treating the RSL with kid gloves take the blowtorch to them and investigate the allegations that the RSL WA has, and is, corrupting its ideals, practices, processes and procedures by wilfully breaching them!

  • I thought it was called the "Australian Army" not the "West Australian Army"! Shouldn't matter where you are from, if you fight for and die for this country then you deserve some special treatment occasionally.

  • Doesn't ANZAC stand for Australia and New Zealand Army Corps? It shouldn't matter which state you signed up for the army in, the fact is that you are or were in the army. This is a disgrace and the RSL needs to have a bit more compassion and stop acting like a "boys club". We need to keep the ANZAC spirit alive and this is not the way to do it.

  • That RSL official who stopped the wives of SAS soldiers killed in Afghanistan should be made to apologize personally to those ladies. Then go and bury his head in the sand. He's not worthy of the position he holds and the RSL would be far better off without him.... Al (ex serviceman)
