Mark Lawson-Kent: Payneham RSL

Posted on: Mon 16 Jul 2018

Many RSLs these days are battling to attract younger Veterans and their families and keep their doors open.  Not so with the Payneham RSL.  With Mark Lawson-Kent, a younger Veteran as their President, a good location and great premises, their plans for the future are looking sound and achievable….  and they haven’t forgotten the young children of Veteran families – with a magnificent, onsite safe children’s playground in the making.  Mark’s record of service includes places like Northern Ireland, Bosnia, The Falklands and others…  yes, before secondment to 1 RAR Mark served in the UK.
