History Of Sub Branch

The Returned & Services League of Australia (Queensland Branch) Rockhampton Combined Services Sub Branch Inc.

Since our conception in 2002 much of our development can be attributed to our inaugural President Mr James Hannay. Jim as he was known had a broad-minded outlook which allowed us to advance business practices that were modern for his time. He established our presence in centres to sell memorabilia. This raised public awareness of our presence. We also undertook other events interfaced with the public in many different sites around the city. He sourced sponsors to help provide welfare for our veterans. The State body had now held the view that public liability insurance was a must. Their help has enabled us exist because; it would have been difficult for a small sub branch such as ours to remain viable in the face of ongoing costs.

We became incorporated on the sixteenth day of January 2003. Now we have a name change. That name which appears above was registered with The Department of Justice and Attorney General by the delegate of Director- General on the fourth day of January 2019. As we were dealing directly with the public our members decided they needed protection for this purpose. We developed a Risk Management Policy within our level of competency to give our members some degree of protection if misfortune struck. We developed this risk management policy in January 2012.

However although being successful over the years we are all growing older. Our jaded enthusiasm towards all of these endeavours makes it harder to provide all the appliances, support and health needs our veterans deserve. We need service and social members with an interest in assisting to provide these services. People with skills are required to become social members to assist in not only these needs, but to become part of the management team. Younger members, with younger and newer ideas are to be part of our future. We would also appreciate input from ex-servicemen returned from recent conflict and peace keeping missions. Their experience will enhance our understanding to provide better policy outcomes. Existing R&SL members who move to our city are also welcome to transfer to our sub branch. Your previous experiences could play an important part in our future development. Our social activities are – at the moment under developed. You could be a big help in this area.
