How the League Evolved

The Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia, later to become The Returned and Services League of Australia was formally established on the 6th June 1916 by a wounded and disabled serviceman who had returned from the Gallipoli campaign. They banded together to improve the ability of returned serviceman to influence the Commonwealth Government policies and decisions. The issues which the founding fathers of the League set out to represent to Government were, firstly, to fight for benefits, treatment, and welfare of veterans, ex-service and serving members of the Defence Force, and secondly, to preserve the health, well-being, and security of Australia and the Australian way of life. These issues continue to remain the focus of the League.

RSL Sub-Branch Badge
The badge worn by all members of the Returned & Services League of Australia is a symbol of readiness at all times to render service to Queen and country and to former comrades. It is a time-honoured emblem – one that has been worn with a deep sense of pride by the most revered in our land and one that glorifies the coats of all privileged to wear it.

Infrastructure of the RSL
The RSL is a national organisation operating through State Branches and their local Sub-Branches where every member has a voice in League matters.
