The Kingsgrove RSL Sub Branch was formed in 1952 by men who had served in World War 1 and World War 2.

From humble beginnings the member’s first held meetings in a scout hall, until the first Club was erected on the corner of Kingsgrove Road and Kingsgrove Avenue. Until 1958 when construction began on the new premises in Brocklehurst Lane.

Throughout the years the Sub Branch has remained strong with member’s who served in both World Wars, Korea, Malaya, Borneo, Vietnam, plus National Service Personnel, Army Reservists and more recently, East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Club premises was purchased from the Sub Branch in 1993, opening the future of the Kingsgrove RSL Club Ltd which now has over 6000 members whilst continuing to maintain our major objective to uphold the ideas of the Returned & Services League.

Kingsgrove RSL Club Sub Branch Members meet on the fourth Monday every second month at 6.30pm.

Commemoration of First World War enlistees associated with Rockdale and surrounding suburbs.

Remembrance Day – 11th November


The Women’s Auxiliary originated after the First World War when a group of women arranged to raise funds to assist returned servicemen who had been injured and needed help to settle back into civilian life.

These days the role of the Women’s Auxiliary is to support the sub-branch on various occasions such as Anzac day and other relevant days. All funds raised are distributed to various RSL charities assisting returned servicemen and women such as Defence Care and Homes for Heroes.

The Women’s Auxiliary at Kingsgrove raises money by having raffles for Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day and Christmas. They also have some fun evenings playing Crazy Whist to which everyone is invited.

Apart from fund raising there are often invitations to socialise with other Auxiliaries by attending Luncheons that are celebrating various occasions. These could be ‘Christmas in July’ or a special anniversary of that Auxiliary.

Kingsgrove Auxiliary invites any ladies who may be interested in joining to ask at the reception desk and the auxiliary will contact you.

Women’s Auxiliary meet every fourth Monday of the month at 6.30pm.
