What is RSL Community Link?

RSL Community Link is an RSL national remembrance project dedicated to keeping alive the names, memories and deeds of departed Australian or Allied service veterans no matter when or where they served or when they died. It does this by enabling people of all ages to attend remembrance services as the personal representative of the departed veteran. 

How does it work?

The representative attends remembrance ceremonies wearing a Veteranís Memorial Plaque which shows the basic service details of the departed veteran, including a coloured ribbon bar indicating the medals to which the veteran was entitled. The representative also wears a Representativeís Link Card which shows the representative's name and his or her relationship to the veteran. Examples are shown in the pictures below.

When can I wear the Plaque, Name Card and badge?

The Veteranís Memorial Plaque and Representativeís Link Card can be worn at any remembrance ceremonies. Examples include Anzac Day (where you may also be able to represent your veteran in the march), Remembrance Day, and any other event where military service is being commemorated. The metal RSL Community Link Badge can be worn at any time.
