HISTORY OF LONGBEACH RSL
The RSL was formed on June 6th 1916, coming from the idea of the Returned Soldiers Association in 1915 which was located in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland. Returned troops would come together to discuss common issues they were all facing after returning from war. They continued the camaraderie and support shown amongst our Australian Diggers, and their legacy continues on in the RSL Clubs across Australia today. Chelsea, Aspendale and Edithvale RSLs came together to form the Longbeach RSL. A club that supports the wellbeing of our former and serving members of the Australian Defence Force, while providing a friendly and enjoyable environment to all members and guests.
