Last Post Ceremony for Glenelg SLSC's Fallen Hero Alexander Remeljej

Last Post Ceremony for Glenelg SLSC's Fallen Hero Alexander Remeljej

50 years on from the Battle of Coral many Vietnam Veterans gather. The aim to commemorate 50 years on since Australia’s ‘mini Tet Offensive’ of Vietnam War will highlight the role of the Battle and the bravery of Australian troops in the Vietnam War. In this battle Australia’s grit, enterprising nature, determination and resilience were on show.  It was a tough battle illustrating Australia’s efforts, against the odds, to protect each other and ‘hold the line’.

It is fitting a local hero is celebrated in this year at the Australian War Memorials Last Post Ceremony, May 25. Just like the Battle of Coral our hero is not known to many. His quiet unassuming role is atypical of those our hero who served and those our hero served with. Some 49 years on the since his passing on those ‘bloody battlefields of Vietnam’.  Private Alexander Remeljej (Rem, to his mates) and Glenelg Surf Life Saving Club Member will finally be reunited with some of his 5 RAR and Glenelg Surf Life Saving Club Members (GSLSC) after being killed in Vietnam in 1969.

Thank You Patrolling Members!

This season has been one of our safest on the beaches for a number of years and in no small part is that due to the efforts of the volunteers that don the uniform week in, week out. THANK YOU!
