Toowong RSL held a Salute to the end of WWII in the Toowong Cemetery with assistance from the Friends of Toowong Cemetery Society led by Mr Darcy Maddock CGMM and the Brisbane City Council at the Shrine of Remembrance in David Garland Place.

Two veterans of WWII were able to attend the ceremony. They are Mr John Briggs and Mrs Ethel Hemming.


The 75th anniversary was also recognised by Beaudesert sub branch where one of those in attendance was District Vice President Mr Steve Monteath.

    Lovely to see John Briggs involved in the 75Th anniversary commemorations. John used to be involved in Scouts and I remember him as an Assistant District Commissioner in our Tyakunda District (Kenmore, Taringa, Indooroopilly, Moggill) in the 1980s. we would love to reconnect with him!
