Long Tan Cross

The Sale RSL & Community Club committee sought to have a special place at the club for reflection remembering our Vietnam War service personnel, particularly in the light of the way they were treated when they came back from war and in recognition of the illnesses many still suffer.    


A project to erect a replica Long Tan Cross emerged and was able to be accomplished through the very generous  donation of time and materials by the following people:


  • Ian Johns of Carter and Johns Concreting - who cast the cross and laid the exposed concrete base.

  • Pat O'Conner of Sale Mixed Concrete  - who donated the concrete for the cross and base and who fashioned the red gum posts.

  • Bunnings Sale who donated 6 white standard roses to adorn the feature.

We are very grateful to these people for their support.
