Sir Raymond Huish CBE Memorial Grant

After enlisting in the Australian Imperial Force in 1915 and serving in the Middle East, Sir Raymond Huish CBE dedicated his post-military life to the RSL in Queensland. As RSL State President for 37 years and the trustee of the League’s numerous charitable funds during that time, he is remembered as making a significant impact on the welfare of the ex-service community.

Named in his honour, the RSL Sir Raymond Huish CBE Memorial Grant provides up to $20,000 annually to a project which furthers rehabilitation and welfare of ex-service personnel who are suffering from the behavioural, mental and physical effects of military service.  

Applications for suitable projects must be made on the grant application form and submitted to the Chairman, RSL Legislative & Awards Committee by 1 March. The recipient of the grant will be announced at the RSL (Queensland Branch) Annual General Meeting each year.

Conditions of the RSL Sir Raymond Huish CBE Memorial Grant are outlined in By-Law 10 of the RSL (Queensland Branch) State By-Laws available here
