10 years or more of ADF service?
Special Laundry Bag offer to acknowledge your service!
We have decided that it’s time again to do something a bit special. We
currently have an opportunity to add to our list at the moment and around our
lovely nation we have amazing volunteers who love to sew for Aussie Heroes.
This is a special offer, open only ‘til 6pm (Sydney time) Sunday night but will
be capped at 50 requests, whichever is sooner.
If you are or have been a serving member who has completed 10 years of
service, or you know someone who has, then here is the deal. You have until
6pm Sunday night to request a personalised Aussie Hero laundry bag for
yourself or for someone you know. The recipient must have served 10 years or
more and does not need to be deployed, or still serving at the time of the
We are hopeful that this will give us the chance to recognise some of those
who have not had the chance to deploy, or because they have served on a
deployment which does not meet the criteria to receive an Aussie Heroes
laundry bag. Nonetheless, they need to know their service counts as well. The
recipient does not have to be currently serving.
You need to EMAIL (no messages or texts please) on friendsofAHQ@gmail.com
with essential details including name, rank, number of years served, PM keys
(or service number) postal address and your preferences.
Please bear in mind that your laundry bag will be designed and made by a
volunteer and they are limited to what they have access to. Service crests and
corps badges are mostly no problem.
Lastly, whoever is requesting a laundry bag will have to cover the cost of
postage ($15) as we cannot ask the volunteer to cover those costs as well as
their time and materials. The funds will need to be deposited into the Aussie
Hero Bank Account and a receipt forwarded to Aussie Heroes by email before a
laundry bag is constructed. Bank details etc will be forwarded via email once
the request has been received and accepted.
This is a short term offer which ends at 6pm Sunday 3 July 2022. Recipient
must have served 10 years or more and does not need to be currently
deployed. $15 postage must be paid prior to bag being made.
Remember, you need to EMAIL me (no messages or texts please) on
