RSL Virtual War Memorial Website
This is an exciting new development managed by RSL SA.The RSL Virtual War Memorial can be found at RSL Virtual War Memorial

The RSL Virtual War Memorial is to be the definitive resource and repository for anyone wanting to research, study or contribute to the commemoration of  South Australia's and the Northern Territory's socio-military history.  The task will be ongoing  - it is an ambitious one.  We are going to build the capacity to present a web page for every service man and woman who has gone in harm's way in the country's name since the Boer War. In the first instance our priority will be those people named on the memorial infrastructure throughout the State and Territory.  Ultimately we want to do so for everyone who served, whether they were named on a memorial or not.
