The Semaphore and Port Adelaide RSL Sub-Branch: Our People and Our History
The Semaphore and Port Adelaide RSL has always had a proud history of being one of the leading South Australian RSL Sub-Branch's. Even before the Sub-Branch was officially established in 1923 as the Semaphore and Port Adelaide R.S.S.I.L.A. (Returned Soldiers & Sailors Imperial League of Australia), the people of Semaphore and Port Adelaide had always been there for the Australian Men and Women who served their country.
We were the last to farewell our troops off as they boarded the ships at Port Adelaide for Gallipoli and we were the the first to welcome them home and to assist the wounded down the gang-ways. We cheerfully provided for the comfort, welfare and entertainment of soldiers and sailors whilst in Adelaide.
We've proudly answered every "Call" from taking up arms in the cause of the Empire, to giving freely on Wattle Day, Poppy Day, The Sailors & Soldiers' Distress Fund, ANZAC Appeal and many, many more.
We've helped build an Orthopedic Wing for the Keswick Military Hospital, assisted in the purchase of the Le Fevre Community Hospital for the people of Semaphore & Port Adelaide and donated to research though Tubercular Soldiers' Aid Fund and the Lord Mayors Cancer Fund.
