Lest We Forget

In 1919, a Trafalgar branch of the Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia (RSSILA) was formed.

In 1922, the new memorial hall was opened by the Governor General, Lord Forster.

The Trafalgar R.S.L. sub-branch served Trafalgar for 71 years, and in 1993, this sub-branch went into recess.

In 2007, the Trafalgar and Thorpdale R.S.L. sub-branches amalgamated.

In 2013, this memorial wall was erected for past serving members of Trafalgar and the surrounding districts, as a lasting memory to all military personnel who served their country.
