War Years

There is a very special connection between our members and those who have served our country in defence. Many of our members have served in two uniforms, both as officers in their community and in various wars and peacekeeping operations.

To this day, several members also act as Army reservists or have served in the military prior to joining NSWPF.

Approximately 51 NSWPF officers have been recorded as paying the the ultimate sacrifice whilst serving in various wars between 1899-1972. 

In honour of all those who have served our country, we’ve retrieved these stories from our archives:
