Organised by the National Servicemen’s Association – Tableland Branch, the event recognised three soldiers who served in Australia’s National Service 1951 to 1959 scheme – Trevor Keeling of Mt Sheridan,

Doug Stace of Carrington, and Boyd McQueen of Atherton and Mossman. Boyd set up the three FNQ branches in 2021.

Relatives of the soldiers placed a poppy on a family plaque manufactured in their honour which will be permanently erected on a Memorial Wall in the Nasho shelter at Rocky Creek War Memorial Park
