Barry VicaryPrint Page
The late Barry Vicary founded the National Servicemen's Association of Australia in Toowoomba, on the 28th November 1987.
A National Serviceman in 1965, Barry sought a better deal for those who served in support units in Australia, Malaysia and Papua-New Guinea and a medal recognising National Service. The Association was later expanded to include the 1951-1959 scheme. That first meeting was in the Toowoomba RSL and later in Queens Park where a lunch was served. Present were Barry Vicary , the late Dennis Connon , Ken Coates, Keith Junnich and Dan Cuddihy .
The Association they founded now is Australia-wide and the second largest ex-service organisation after the RSL.
