Flame of Remembrance – Kings Park

July 2016 marks the centenary of South Africa’s equivalent of Gallipoli, the Battle of Delville Wood one of the bloodiest battles of World War 1 and where the fighting qualities and tenacity of the Rhodesian and South African soldier was born.

All ex-servicemen and women are requested to wear their medals


We are dedicated to supporting our service men and women who have suffered as a result of their service to our country and it is with great pleasure that we invite you to our Open Day at our Floreat Reintegration & Recovery Centre to explore our new centre and learn more about what Soldier On are doing to support service affected personnel in WA, as well as opening discussion on how we can collaboratively provide a better future for our people. This invitation only session is also an opportunity for key stakeholders, sponsors and supporters to provide feedback to Soldier On about how we can improve our systems and activities to better support those in need.

AGRI Veterans

From Deployment to Employment: Agricultural Jobs for Veterans - A New Initiative

Who Benefits?

After serving in the military, the transition back to civilian life can be difficult, especially when looking for employment. It can be particularly hard for those who are wounded – whether the wounds are physical or not quite so visible from the outside.

Fortunately, there is one industry that could suit your existing skill set and outlook: agriculture.

This has led Agri Labour Australia and Walking Wounded to join forces.

Our aim is to help veterans find stable, rewarding roles that match existing skills and abilities.
We hope to bridge the gap between deployment and employment, helping our returning soldiers find meaningful careers while also safeguarding the future of our nation’s great farming tradition.
