Historical Collection


Behind the Scenes

Recognising our Volunteers


shed 2The SAS Historical Foundation is a volunteer organisation. The exhibits that comprise the Historical Collection and the grounds and monuments of the Garden of Reflection are carefully prepared and maintained by the Volunteers with a degree of loving care that only former soldiers and those with close ties to the Regiment can achieve. Our Volunteers include veterans of the SAS Company and extend through the Regiment’s history to former members and recent retirees, providing an almost continuous living history of all aspects of the Australian SAS.shed 1

SAS Historical Foundation Volunteers are also responsible for archiving and materiel storage, fundraising and the conduct of seminars and forums aligned with the ideals of the Foundation. They are also at the cutting edge of research and development concerning the design and production of the unique weight bearing mannequins used throughout the Historical Collection. The rich experience of the Volunteers and their dedication to ensuring that the history of the Regiment remains accurate, relevant and well displayed, is very shedmuch part of the total SAS Historical Collection and Foundation experience in general.

The volunteers’ intimate knowledge of the equipment, weapons, vehicles, boats, communications equipment, operational tactics, techniques, procedures and personalities who served in the Australian SAS makes the SAS Historical Collection a very remarkable and truly ‘special’ feature of the SASR History and Research Centre.
