GENERAL INFORMATION

History of RSL Women’s Auxiliaries

The Australian Imperial Service of Women’s Auxiliary was formed in Phillip
Street, Sydney by mothers, wives, widows, sisters, daughters and aunts of men who
served in the Australian Imperial Forces in the First World War [1914-1918]. The
Auxiliaries grew from this beginning to raise money for the welfare of men and
women who served and their widows and families.

In 1947 at Returned and Services League [NSW Branch] State Congress, a
resolution was formed that a Central Council of Women’s Auxiliaries be established.

On 18 August 1948 Mr. K. Todd OBE, Country Vice President of Returned and
Services League of Australia [NSW Branch] held the first Returned and Services
League Women’s Auxiliary Congress at the Young Women’s Christian Association
Liverpool Street, Sydney. 140 Auxiliaries attended from all over NSW, approximately
3110 members attending.

The first President was Mrs K. Todd [1948-1949], Metropolitan Vice-
President, Mrs Pat Maitland with Mrs M. Hawkins the State Treasurer and Mrs Gwen
Richards State Secretary.

The Returned and Services League [NSW Branch] of Women’s Auxiliary is a
non-political non-sectarian organisation. It raises funds for the well being of our ex-service
men and women and their dependants and current serving defence force
personnel. It undertakes hospital and convalescent visitations, home visits etc. Its
funds are raised through raffles, street stalls and other functions to support the
Welfare and Benevolent Institution. This assists the Welfare Officers to carry out their
duties in providing for the ever increasing need for Welfare.

At the appropriate times of the year Anzac Badges and Remembrance
Emblems are sold.

Other fund raising avenues arise throughout the year in local areas and with
parent sub-Branches.

The Returned and Services League [NSW Branch] of Women’s Auxiliaries
were founded on fellowship and a desire to care for our communities. This continues
to exist to this day. Members enjoy the friendship of like- minded women and the
opportunity to develop welfare skills. Members enjoy visiting other Auxiliaries when
they hold functions, sharing ideas and ideals.

RSL Women’s Auxiliary is a voluntary organisation, dedicated to raising
funds for the welfare of veterans of all wars and conflicts.

Eligibility of membership is open to any woman over 16 years of age.

Encouraging membership is the future of RSL NSW Women’s Auxiliaries to carry on
this good work for years to come. Many present members have been in the Auxiliary
for over 50 years, a lifetime of devotion to the welfare of veterans
