Veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars will be among those honoured at a new commemorative service in Goulburn.

The Goulburn RSL Sub Branch will lead the Middle East Area of Operations National Commemorative Day at the Belmore Park honour role on Saturday, July 13. It will be held two days after the July 11 date declared by the NSW RSL for the service, allowing working men and women to attend.

The commemoration would also include veterans of East Timor and Solomon Islands peacekeeping missions.

Australia's participation in Middle Eastern conflicts came at a cost. Forty-one lives were lost in Afghanistan while two service people died Iraq and Kuwait. Many returned with long-lasting physical and mental trauma.

The 30-minute July 13 commemoration starts at 11am. All ex-servicemen and women and members of the community are welcome.

For more information about the service, please contact the RSL Sub Branch.
