The Gympie Memorial Hall was erected to commemorate those who served in World War One and Two.  

This hall no longer exists and the foundation stone plaque is located on the Gympie RSL building. 

"In an age swinging towards materialism and selfishness we require reminding that, not only have we rights, but duties and obligations"— this declaration was made by Major General Sir William Glasgow who officiated at the laying of the foundation stone of the Gympie R.S.L.'s proposed new memorial hall in Upper Mary street on Saturday afternoon. Sir William also officially opened the modern-looking club rooms which will form part of the eventually constructed two-storey brick hall.  A native and ex-resident of Gympie, Sir William has been Minister for Defence and Australian High Commissioner to Canada. as well as holding a distinguished military record.
