One of the Order’s goals is to help support His Majesty’s Armed Forces throughout the Commonwealth.
So we are delighted to announce that Australian members of the Order are starting a fundraising campaign in support of Australian armed forces personnel and their families.
Our chosen charity for this work is the Commando Welfare Trust, which was founded in 2010 to establish a safety net for Australian special forces soldiers, veterans, and family members.
Special forces personnel are elite soldiers who train under extremely dangerous conditions. They are disproportionately deployed into combat and are 50% more likely to experience a casualty. They are the bravest of the brave and deserve our support.
