Decorations in the RSL Hall for Victory day celebrations at Charleville. The RSL Hall was purchased ca.1946 to serve as a War Memorial Hall and Clubrooms. The Charleville Returned and Services League Branch formed in 1919.
'Beilby' adds:
The first RSL Hall was a air-time igloo transported in from the aerodrome. It was located on the block of land where the present RSL now stands - i.e. opposite Miss Tottie Connolly and Frank Connolly's residence on the corner. This opening was a grand affair much talked about in town. Note the importance at that time of the presence of the Union Jack.
