Brendan Kelleher started this petition to RSLWA and

A group of R.A.A.F and R.A.F and R.N.Z.A.F Vets asked my friend to organize transport for them to travel up to Kings Park for Bomber Command Day so they could place wreaths. She happened to be in Perth a couple of weeks before hand and thought that she would check out where the Airforce Memorial was in the Park. She Walked around for 3 hours and found that there was not a Memorial apart from a 462 Sqn one and that was way way out of the way. Also the up keep of it was not good as the Sqn Association here in Perth had been disbanded because only a handful of members were still alive.

She had to tell the Vets that there was no Memorial. To cut a very long story short. They asked her to see if the wrong of not having an Air Force Memorial could be corrected. The R.A.A.F is in agreeance but are not able to help. The W.A R.S.L will not support a memorial. The Kings Park director would not even take it to the board. She has seen 18 politicians or people in power and they all have hand balled her off or said a straight out NO.

After each meeting she has to go back and tell her Vets that the answer was another no, and they always ask "WHY NOT" and that is the question we can not answer but we need to be asking. Not one of the people in power will come down and tell the Vets themselves why the answer is no.

She is finding it a wee bit hard now as she has been doing it on her own and paying for it herself as she quite rightly feels that the Vets should not pay and she is only a pensioner. She feels as the months go by that she is really letting these boys and girls down as it shouldn't be this hard to just have a simple Memorial. This is a disgrace that needs to be fixed, this year is the 100th anniversary of the RAAF and also an election year, please support this cause sign this petition and write to your MP and the Premier (e-Mail: wa-government@dpc.wa.gov.au) The Hon Darren Chester MP Minister for Veterans' Affairs and Minister for Defence Personnel telling them that you will not stand for this and ask them what they're doing about it.
