Send mail to troops overseas

THE Clarence Valley community can support Australian troops serving overseas by sending them care packages to arrive in time for ANZAC Day.

Member for Page Janelle Saffin MP has provided postal addresses for packages to be sent to the Middle East, East Timor and the Solomon Islands, which are active till April 15.

“ANZAC Day is not only a day to remember the sacrifices our troops have made for our nation but also a day for us to show support to our troops currently serving overseas,” Ms Saffin said.

“It’s best to send items that will remind our troops of home. Things like magazines, books and DVDs.”

Items weighing up to 2kg and posted in a BM-size Australia Post carton can be posted without cost to the sender.

However, parcels exceeding this limit will incur full postal charges, which must be paid by the sender.

Also, emails to the troops can be sent to messagestothetroops@defence.gov.au.

For postal security reasons, parcels must be posted in person with presentation of photograph identification and can be lodged at any Australia Post outlet, using the following addresses:

Middle East
