Auckland RSA: 101 years of continuous comradeship

In 1916 returning Gallipoli Veterans formed the Auckland RSA on the values of practical comradeship or the ‘mates looking after mates’ principle.

The Auckland RSA remains true to the men and women of the Gallipoli generation by assisting those in need who are serving or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families and dependents.

From our beginnings, the men and women of the Auckland RSA have remembered their fallen comrades-in-arms.  We continue to honour their memory not only at the Cenotaph and in other services of commemoration in Auckland but in what we do every day.

From our beginnings, we have welcomed comrades from each successive war or conflict. The Auckland RSA was one of the few to welcome the men and women who served in Vietnam.  Today we make welcome New Zealand’s contemporary Veterans: the men and women who served in Bosnia, East Timor, Afghanistan and Iraq and all other recent deployments.
