The Alleged Politicisation of ANZAC Day Services by RSL Qld is Wrong

16 Apr 2024

Claims that RSL Queensland has directed that an acknowledgement to country be included in the RSL’s Anzac Day services are incorrect.

RSL Qld President Stephen Day has released this Communique: 

Dear RSL Queensland Members, 

We have been made aware of a narrative that we are directing the use of an Acknowledgement of Country at key events and commemorative occasions, principally ANZAC Day. This is wrong.

Directing the use of an Acknowledgement of County is not, and never has been,RSL Queensland policy. 

Whether a member, Sub Branch, or District wishes to use an Acknowledgement of Country is entirely their discretion.  

If you need advice, please reach out to your District.”
