News (Adelaide), 27 June 1929.
The Semaphore Soldiers' Memorial Hall was opened by Mr. P. A. Messenger, president of the Port Adelaide and Semaphore sub-branch of the Returned Soldiers' League, on Saturday afternoon. Among the official guests were Mr. F. J. Brown (Mayor of Port Adelaide) and Colonel W. Dollman (acting president of the State branch of the league). Mr. Brown said the hall was only a small tribute in view of what the soldiers did in the war. What would have happened had not they so nobly responded to the call was terrible to contemplate. In the erection of the building the Port Adelaide Corporation had many obstacles to overcome, but all had been negotiated.
