Tuesday 15 August from 11am to 12pm

On the morning of 15th August 1945, the Emperor of Japan announced that Japan would accept the Allies ultimatum to surrender.

For Australians, this meant the end of the Second World War. A war that had seen nearly 1 million Australians serve in the armed forces. Of those, over 30,000 Australians were taken prisoner and 39,000 did not return to their loved ones. A legacy which is still felt today.

78 years later, on 15 August 2023 join RSL NSW as we remember and respect all those Australians that served during the Second World War; those who gave the ultimate sacrifice; those who returned and were forever scarred; and those who cared for our veterans.
