The Memorial Club
The licensed Memorial Club membership base differs significantly from the Sub Branch. Licensed Clubs operation under the RSL banner have a different constitution and responsibility, and are in fact independent standalone businesses offering a broader local community and family friendly venue for entertainment and relaxation.
They have bar and dining facilities and regularly gambling options for their members and guests. These Clubs still observe a one minute’s silence in respect to the fallen and the “ODE” is read to honour those veterans’ who fought for our country.
The Sub Branch owns the club buildings, and is the responsible landlord. The income received by the Sub Branch from the Memorial Club is the monthly rental. It is common that the Licensed Clubs no longer refer to veterans’ or serving personnel in their mission statement or constitutions, instead proclaiming their support to the community, social members and sporting clubs.
Membership of the Memorial Club does not imply or result in membership of the Sub Branch.
