Sub Branch History

The Charleville Returned and Services League Branch was formed in 1919.

During World War II, an air-time igloo situated near the current Charleville Airport, became a thriving dance hall where the Salvation Army and Red Cross coordinated dances for both Australian and American servicemen.

In the late 1940’s this dance hall was relocated to the corner of Watson and River Streets Charleville which is the current site of the Charleville RSL Club. The building became known as the Charleville Memorial Hall

The Charleville RSL Sub-Branch is run by Veterans, Ex-Service Personnel and Social Auxilliary members.
