‘We Remember the Sacrifice and Commitment’


Armistice Centenary War Memorial

On the 25 April we commemorate the anniversary of the day Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed on the beaches of Gallipoli in 1915 as part of the Allies’ invasion. On that day Australians recognise the more than 1.5 million men and women who have served Australia in conflicts, wars and peacekeeping operations around the world. It is especially a time to remember some 102,000 Australians who lost their lives while serving.

We must never forget the sacrifices made by Australians during the Great War and all other conflicts that followed.  Equally, we must never take for granted the losses suffered by the families that lived on without their loved ones after the various conflicts ended.

Strength in Community

ANZAC Day is set aside for us to remember those, including our rifle club members, who have served our country in all conflicts, to reflect upon their unselfish service and to embrace the history that has defined our country – at this time each year we keep that history alive through reflecting on the past.

The Roll of Honour Tribute

Captain Edward Frederick Robert Bage an extraordinarily determined and talented individual. He was killed at Gallipoli within two weeks of the landing aged 27 years. Mrs Lyn Cramp, QRA Researcher, has carefully assembled the many events that made up Bage’s short life. His inspirational life story gives an insight into the courage and selflessness displayed by so many rifle club members who served during the Great War and the conflicts that followed.
