Australia Day Honours 2024

RSL NSW congratulates all veterans who have been recognised in the 2024 Australia Day Honours. A significant number of our dedicated volunteer members received awards. 

RSL NSW stands to support our veteran community through camaraderie, mateship, recreation, and commemoration. The annual Australian Honours and Awards system recognises the outstanding service and contributions of Australians

Each award is a testament to the recipient’s continued efforts while embodying the spirit of what it means to wear an RSL badge – a symbol of readiness at all times to render service to the country and former comrades.

RSL NSW thanks our dedicated members and all other award recipients for your selflessness, commitment, and dedication to volunteering your time to help your mates.
