Headquarters Command has been busy this quarter in promoting the RHRL, collecting and providing various used goods for charity dispersal, collecting books, magazines and DVD's which need to be sorted and then recipients sourced.

Some of the actions carried out this quarter have been:


HQ Command continues to collect reading materials by way of books and recent magazines for distribution in the local area to shelters & hospitals etc. as well as to Foodbank for them to distribute as needed.


HQ Command continues to collect clothing and similar items for distribution to those in need. Two deliveries of used clothing were made to Foodbank this quarter.


On three occasions this quarter, one young member Legionnaire Deborah, attended the elderly accommodation and care unit at Northampton District Hospital in Western Australia where she decorated the fingernails of many of the elderly female residents much to their delight. This may well become a regular event as both the ladies and their carers were very appreciative of this effort and much talking was heard around town about these decorated fingernails.


The Principality released a new set of postage stamps on May 17 2013. The stamps feature the Cap Badge designs of the four Arms of the Royal Hutt River Defence Forces, RHRL is included with a $1.60 denomination stamp carrying the Cap Badge design of the Legion. These stamps may be purchased from the Royal Hutt River Postal Service either when visiting Nain or by email purchase via PHR-OnLine.


Large screen TV with remote was repaired and provided to Foodbank for distribution to a family who could use it.


HQ Command continues to support the efforts of our other members and units in providing service to their areas of concern and continues to seek out those who could use the assistance of the Royal Hutt River Legion.
