Altona RSL - 31 Sargood St, Altona, Melbourne
Barbara Abley, a long serving member of Geelong Sub-Branch RSL Celebrants Team (voluntary capacity) is regularly asked to officially recognise and honour former and current Australian Defence Forces (Navy, Army, Airforce) personnel [on behalf of the Australian Government and the Returned Services League of Australia], during a ‘normal’ Funeral Service. The June meeting will provide an opportunity for members to be updated on the different Rituals (services) provided by RSL Celebrants at Funeral Services for former or serving members including the use of the Australian Flag and laying of Poppies either at the Chapel or Graveside, plus explain the different variations of the Last Post.
She is also happy to explain how this Ritual may be modified to recognise the service performed by deceased Allied Service men and women (ie UK, NZ).
Free for members. $30 for non members. RSVP to funeralcelebrants [at] gmail.com;
