War Animal Day Cronulla

Next date: Saturday 24 February 2024
38 Gerrale Street, Cronulla, New South Wales, 2230


24th February is the National Day for War Animals in Australia. On this day the nation will recognise the important roles that animals have and continue to play in war.

Animals have been put to many uses in war, serving as transport, beasts of burden, messengers, protectors, mascots, and pets. They have played an important part in all wars in which Australians have been involved.

In honour of War Animal Day, Cronulla RSL will be holding a special memorial service. The club invites all to attend to commemorate our brave animal friends.

The service will be held at the Club’s Memorial Garden. The garden features are bronze plaque dedicated to animals who have served during times of war and peace, which is the first of it’s kind at an RSL club in NSW.

Locals are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends to the memorial, however it’s important to remember that dogs must be on a lead and cats must be contained, and under the effective control of a competent person.
