The Hut Closed Friday, 17 SEP 21

As there will be numerous regular attendees absent, including anyone to open the Hut or authorised to serve behind the bar, it’s unfortunate that we will not be able to open The Hut next Friday evening.

The following Friday will be a meal night and is expected to go ahead as scheduled.

As always, we will look forward to seeing you when next we open.

Saluting their Service Exhibition

The Barossa Regional Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of photographs and oral history stories from military veterans who served in all theatres of war from and including WWII and their widows/widowers.

This exhibition arranged by The Emu Tree's, Christian Teusner appeared during SALA last year and this year and was highly popular. Apart from a huge collection of photographs of those who served, the oral histories may be listened to on-site or at any other time online here.

The exhibition will be held from Saturday, 18 September 2021 daily until Sunday, 26 September 2021 between 11 am and 3 pm on all days.

Funding for the exhibition was provided to our Sub-Branch by the Department of Veteran's Affairs and your committee partnered with The Emu Tree to undertake the project on our behalf. 

It's been very successful with dozens of oral histories recorded and hundreds of original photographs provided by veterans and their families.

It's a must-see, so tell your friends and family and visit during the above times.

There are some very generous discounts being offered at present because of the pandemic disruptions. It's a good time to update your kit of memorabilia, add some new gear, or to arrange some presents for family and friends. Remember, if you buy, please do so through one of our links.

Don't Miss this Event

 The RSL - A Time to Celebrate

Emu Tree's Christian Teusner is holding a number of displays across the state, one of which is a SALA event at Ayres House, Adelaide from 28 August until 5 September on Saturdays and Sundays between 10 am and 3 pm.

The displays are an extensive photographic exhibition featuring images submitted by veterans and their families. 

There are also hundreds of hours of oral histories submitted by veterans and war widows you can listen to using headphones provided at the display sites or here where they are stored as podcasts.

These images and recorded histories were captured by Christian last year and this year as a result of "Saluting their Service" grants provided to our sub-branch by the Department of Veteran's Affairs.

Christian has done an excellent job capturing historical media that will be preserved in Australia's Military Archives for future generations.

Further information about Christian's displays schedule will be posted here in the near future.
