Association Information

The National Servicemen’s Association represents the 287,000 men called up to serve in the Navy, Army and Air Force between 1951 until 1972.

The National Serviceman’s Association was established by the late Barry Vicary in 1987 based in Toowoomba, Queensland. In 1994 the organisation was incorporated under Queensland’s Incorporation Act under the name, National Serviceman’s Association of Australia (Queensland) Inc. The Association has a growing membership across all parts of Queensland and Interstate. It is a member of the national body for the advancement of welfare for Nashos and their dependants. The National Servicemen’s Association is involved in extending the community knowledge of National Service.

           
Membership of the Association is open to all Australian National Servicemen. Supporters may also join. Members receive regular newsletter “Nasho News” and access to Association events and services, memorabilia and merchandise. Reciprocity arrangements with kindred associations also exist.
 

The Association conducts or is involved in Marches, Ceremonies and Services throughout the year. Branch members march behind the National Servicemen’s Banners on ANZAC Day. National Servicemen’s Day is the 14th February each year and celebrations and Memorial Services are held on the Sunday immediately prior to this day. These marches are held in each capital city and many major provincial centres. 

Members of the Association enjoy camaraderie and fellowship at social activities conducted by Branches throughout the year. They still enjoy recalling the memories. 

Welfare officers (accredited by Department of Veteran Affairs) work with members as and when required. The Association supports the Australian Defence Force Cadets.

You will experience satisfaction from joining and becoming involved in the National Servicemen’s Association.
