In November 1956 a Club was formed from the Ramsgate RSL sub branch. Mt J Carberry was listed as President, with Ray Mates as Secretary and H. Jarret as Treasurer.
The club was granted a liquor license in the following year and together with the legalisation of gaming machines, this allowed the club to accumulate fund and commence building modern club premises by 1963. The new club building was finished in 1965 and was officially opened in April of that year by Major General Ivan Dougherty, Director of Civil Defence in NSW and one of Australia’s most distinguished military commanders.
Today Ramsgate RSL boasts some 12,000 members in a well established retail and residential district.
ANZAC Day, 25 April, is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as ANZACs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day. For full details on the ANZAC Tradition click here
