A proud tradition of service

2743_001 (Small)

For 97 years the Five Dock RSL Sub-Branch has been committed to serving ex-servicemen and their dependents.

The Five Dock RSL Sub-Branch is one of the oldest clubs in Australia, having been issued with its Charter in 1918, two years after the RSL movement began in Australia.

To coincide with the Centenary of Anzac, a history of the Five Dock RSL Sub-Branch has been published to record the club’s proud tradition of service. Despite the scarcity of remaining records, the author Mike Davis has managed to piece together the stories of those who have contributed to making the club such a special part of our community.

A particular feature of the book are the fascinating stories behind the names on the Five Dock War Memorial, of those who gave their lives in the First World War. The book is a fine tribute to those who served.
