RSL Poems

Many of our old diggers from WW2 are well into their 80's now. Often members of the Forum contribute poems about the wars, Australia's contribution and the importance of freedom. I'm planning on printing out poems from this section and leaving them down my local RSL in a display folder for people to read as many of the old diggers appreciate bush poetry. Perhaps you might care to do the same. So remember, if you post here, it may be published in a RSL, so make sure your copyright notice and name is between the title and first line of the poem.

Poetry of Those Gone Before

Poetry of those members who are no longer with us. As we search these boards, members are invited to post Friend's works here so they are gathered into one place and easily accessible to all.

Bush Music

Bush Music General

I really want to see some improvement in this area. We are losing too much of our bush music and its traditions.
