Donations of Memorabilia:

The current policy is that individual items donated by members of the Association, their families or their friends will become the property of The 9 RAR Association unless otherwise stated by the donor. 
All donations will be recorded in a database and the donor member listed on the Donors and Donations' page.

Donations of Original Medals:

The current policy for donating or bequeathing member's original medals to the 9 RAR Museum Collection is as follows.

Our position with regard to both the 9th Battalion Museum and 9 RAR Museum Collection is that the original medal sets should always stay within the family and should be handed down to a family member when the member dies.  Our view also is that medal sets should not be split up.
HOWEVER, where there is no family or the family has no interest in the medals then we suggest to the family that they donate the medals to an appropriate Museum or Historical Organisation. In the case of the 9th Battalion Museum and the 9 RAR Museum Collection, we will accept any medals from members of any of the Ninth Battalions (9th Battalion AIF, 2/9th Battalion AIF, 9th Moreton Regiment, 9 RAR, 9 RQR, and 8/9 RAR). The medals will be truly honoured.

When we receive the original medals we obtain a photo and some history and put them in a frame in the Honour Room or 9 RAR Room.  In some cases, we have had replicas made or donated and these are put up in honour of the person.

When a 9 RAR member has indicated they would like to donate their medals to the 9 RAR Museum Collection at a later date, we have advised them that they should put an instruction in their will to that effect.
