Hi Veteranweb Members,
Over the coming days you will get access to the Veteranweb Forum. This is a private space that is not searchable to the internet, where you can feel safe to ask questions, respond to questions or just have a general chat.
Some of the Questions of the day
- Should the ADF return to 7.62 weapons?
- Do you think the RSL is doing enough to attract younger veterans?
Why have a forum?

- Problem Solving: Forums can be a great resource for solving problems or finding solutions to complex issues. By bringing together people with different perspectives and experiences, forums can provide a collaborative environment for brainstorming and problem-solving.
I think it is imperative that the ADF return to the NATO 7.62. With body armour getting so much more resilient to small bore ammunition the hitting and stopping power of the bigger round is needed. The S.L.R, was a robust weapon and fare out performed the anything in the field at that time. It’s stopping power was second to nun and the reliability factor was never questioned.
