After I was contacted by a Veteran who lives in Melbourne, Australia, I decided that perhaps now is the time to include an Australia page.

Unfortunately there seems to be very little available for British veterans now settled in Australia, however I am including as many ex-service associations I can find to help all who need it.

If you are a British veteran or any ex-service person (whatever your country) who needs someone to talk to, then please click here and you can email me at anytime about anything you like. Even if you are not British you can still talk to me.

The following are some very useful Links to Associations and Charities that help ex-service personnel in Australia:
