The plaque commemorates 50 years of service by the Legion Memorial Club which is open to all service personnel and commemorates all who served. 

At the end of World War Two, the Ex-Servicemen's organised strength was divided between the RSL and the Legion of Ex-Servicemen and Women. RSL Members decided by national ballot that membership should be restricted to those who had served overseas. Legion membership was open to all Ex-Service personnel regardless of their place of service.
