Banyo RSL Sub-Brance and Citizen’s Auxiliary

The Banyo RSL Sub-Branch started as a small group of veterans after WW2.The first meeting was held on 15 August 1945. This, however, was not the first time members of the local community had formed a group to look after their war veterans.

The Sub-Branch has seen a number of homes since its days in the Memorial Hall. At present it has the use of rooms at the Multicap Building in Earnshaw Road. The main function of the Sub-Branch is to look after the welfare of veterans, war widows/widowers and their families. The community is not forgotten, with donations and shields presented to local schools and sporting groups. Sub-Branch membership hovers around 65 members.
