Mascot RSL Memorial Plinth Unveiling

Ron Hoenig MP paying his respects
It was a very moving ceremony held at the Eastlakes Sports Club for the Mascot RSL Sub Branch unveiling of the Memorial Plinth and wreath laying.

Attended by our Veterans, members of the community were joined by Federal Kingsford Smith MP, Matt Thistlewaite, Botany Bay Mayor Ben Keneally, Cr Brian Troy and I.

"On this day, we recall those who, in the great tragedy of war gave their lives for Australia and for the freedom of mankind who will sleep amid the ridges of battlefields throughout the world in unknown resting places on every continent and every sea. We remember all who have given their lives in all wards in the air, sea and on land. May we and our successors, prove worth of their sacrifice" said RSL President Paul Graham.

Lest we forget.
