Creswick-Smeaton RSL Memories of WWII Veterans
With the assistance of Terry Hope, the RSL started videoing 11 Creswick WWII Veterans in 2013 - seven men & four women. To assist with some of the cost of the production, the RSL was successful in receiving a grant from the Department of Veteran Affairs under "Saluting Their Service". Filming began before the grant was approved, as the RSL was well aware that if we left it any longer we may lose some of them. As it turned out, we lost Jack Vallance not long after filming him.
A copy of the DVD is available from the RSL for $20 (delivery arranged for locals) + $5 postage. Cheque or Money Order preferred. Send details Contact Us
