War Widows Guild of Australia (Queensland) Print Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the foundation of the War Widows Guild of Australia (Queensland) in 1947 and all war widows. 

The War Widows' Guild of Australia was formed in 1945 in Victoria by the late Mrs Jessie Mary Vasey OBE, CBE, widow of Major-General George Vasey. In 1947 the Queensland State Branch was formed. The Guild aims to watch over and protect the interests of war widows by lobbying politicians and offering its members friendship, empathy and comfort in times of need, particularly in the loss of a partner.

 WAR WIDOWS GUILD of AUSTRALIA (QLD)
                        Founded 1947

"IT IS NO MEAN DESTINY TO BE CALLED UPON
TO GO ON FOR A MAN WHO HAS LAID DOWN HIS LIFE "

"We all  belong to each other
We all need each other
It is in serving each other
And in sacrificing for our common good
That we are finding our true life."
