Sub Branch History

Warwick RSL Sub-Branch is the oldest continuous Sub-Branch in Queensland and was formed on August 4, 1917. Membership numbers are static at around 140-150 and is made up of veterans and ex-servicemen and women from all theatres from WWII to the present time.

The Yangan/Emu Vale Sub-Branch is a chapter of Warwick RSL Sub-Branch.

The Sub-Branch is heavily involved with 17ACU (cadets) and the Warwick Light Horse Troop.

The Sub-Branch is involved in memorial services at all 17 schools in the district in the lead-up to ANZAC Day and are involved on an ad-hoc basis with several of the schools throughout the year. We also conduct the ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day services and support the Vietnam Veteran’s Day service at the Cenotaph Precinct in Leslie Park.

We have an excellent relationship with Warwick’s two Aged Care centres, we conduct ANZAC Day services in both each year and always visit with gifts for DVA clients at Christmas time.

The Sub-Branch owns two, two-bedroom independent living units which are let to veterans and others who qualify. These units have been occupied constantly since being built in the early 2000s.

Our annual reunion luncheon is held on the first Sunday after Remembrance Day at the RSL Memorial Club and normally attracts in excess of 80 members and their wives along with representatives from other Sub-Branches.

The Sub-Branch produces a 10-page newsletter every quarter with relevant news, DVA updates, a memorial vale for recently deceased members, articles related to Australians in wartime and one page is devoted to the worst jokes you’ve ever read.
