After many weekends work of painting by Michelle Joyce and Bayley Wooster, the Northam RSL Mural “The  lone Digger in a field of poppies”  was lit up on the night of the Dinner Dance for the first time.

This was dedicated on the 10th Nov, part of the “Centenary of Armistice” weekend events that the Sub Branch held.

More photos and video of the weekend’s celebrations will be uploaded.

On the 9th October 1942, 4 airmen died during a routine training flight from Cunderdin to Pearce. In the months following the crash, local community members erected a memorial.

The Northam RSL invite all to the memorial service on Saturday 13th October at 11am.  You can find the memorial about half way up Avro Anson Road, Mokine.  A lunch will be available at the Northam RSL Memorial Hall afterwards, for a small cost.  Please RSVP to our Membership Secretary, Donna
