Shrine of Remembrance Medal

Since 2008, the Shrine of Remembrance Medal has provided recognition to an individual or group that has made outstanding contributions to the advancement of community knowledge and understanding of the service and sacrifices made by Victorians for their country in times of war and peacekeeping. Past recipients have been drawn from a range of disciplines, each working tirelessly to support the objective of honouring service men and women, past and present.

The 2019 Recipient is Mr Alan Jameson

 

Nominated by the Hon Edward O’Donohue, Member for Eastern Victoria Region, who states ‘much of Alan’s efforts are done behind the scenes, he is a devoted welfare officer for the 39th Battalion and regularly visits veterans and spouses of veterans to check on their welfare’.

 

Alan’s outstanding achievements in honouring and ensuring the sacrifices made by veterans and their families in all conflicts are remembered, makes him an outstanding candidate. Alan regularly speaks at local schools within the Shire of Cardinia about the Kokoda Campaign and its importance to Australia, and is the instigator of The Harold Bould Memorial Award — a competition open to all Year 10 students attending schools within the Shire of Cardinia, providing the opportunity to take part in a Kokoda trek.
