About Us

The SA Legion is a National Organisation, part of a world-wide family of organisations serving the needs of ex-service personnel and their dependents in the way of housing, pensions, employment and general welfare. It is non-sectarian and apolitical.

It undertakes investigations on behalf of the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League (RCEL) in respect of assistance requested by other Commonwealth countries.

The accommodation is not serviced and residents must be able to care for themselves. There is no Frail Care facility but there is always a helping hand to assist with minor ailments and illnesses.
