On the 3rd September, Benalla RSL Sub-Branch President, Mr Jeff Lewis had the pleasure of presenting a Badge and Certificate of Life Membership to Mr Ralph Shinkfield, a WW2 Catalina Pilot and a member of the RAAF’s 42 Squadron, and three RSL National Certificates to Mr Paul Ransom and Mr Brett Taylor-Parkins for their long service to the Benalla RSL Sub-Branch.⠀

The recipient of one of RSL Victoria's most pretigious awards, Mr Shinkfield was also part of the 112 Squadron Air Sea Rescue and joined the RSL in 1946 at the #CamberwellCityRSL Sub-Branch before transferring to the Benalla RSL Sub-Branch.⠀

Mr Paul Ransom and Mr Brett Taylor-Parkins were awarded the RSL National Certificate for their long service to the Benalla RSL Sub-Branch in numerous positions but most notably in the Anzac and #RemembranceDay Committee and as Parade Marshals on #AnzacDay.⠀

The last RSL National Certificate was awarded to Mr Ron Burns a WW2 Veteran, (RAAF) and a former Vice-President of the Benalla RSL Sub-Branch. Mr Burns was instrumental in starting and organising the #VictoryInThePacific commemorations for the Sub-Branch for a number of years as well as starting the drop-in centre for the Sub-Branch, which he could often be found manning.⠀

Mr Lewis said “All of these members have put in many volunteer hours on behalf of the Benalla RSL Sub-Branch and it is an honour to recognise their service with these Certificates from the RSL National Executive.”⠀

Once a soldier always a soldier. There are so many iconic American aspects to this photo, including the confederate flag which in modern times is/can be viewed as a symbol of the south, southern pride and or racism. There is no room in this world for the latter. This photo is about the soldier; soldier on brother. "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes. Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it. Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them", George Santayana.
