Tramways/East Melbourne RSL Sub Branch - RSL Victoria Listing id: 27511 Fitzroy, Victoria

We are a traditional RSL Sub Branch Ex Service Organisation. Therefore we do not have Poker machines.

Our rooms are in an Historical Victorian Residence.

We have 79 members and growing with Contemporary Veterans members. Pro rata we have the largest membership of younger veterans of RSL's in Victoria, which we are really proud of.

The Tramways/ East Melbourne RSL Sub-Branch meet once per month on the fourth Tuesday.

The Royal Australian Regiment Association also meet there.

What a fantastic collection. I can't wait to see more of your memorabilia on here!

Hi Belinda. I hope 2016 is looking after you and Cameron. I have some great news about our Memorabilia Project. As of 30 April 2016 we formalised the establishment of the TEM Memorabilia Project. Sadira Campbell, the partner of one of our Contemporary Afghanistan Veterans, has set up an arrangement with TEM and Deakin University Museum Studies. A flyer was prepared by Sadira, inviting students to gain practical experience for their studies by being involved in the TEM Memorabilia Project, to gain practical experince for their Masters Studies. Two people have expressed interest. We met with Ari Hunter, whom you know and Chris Ingle who was not able to attend this meeting. John Dobeli, who is now the TEM Librarian and Memorabilia Curator and I are really excited about the valuable skills the new team will bring to us and give us a new momentum to getting our Memorabilia up to your projects expectations. We look forward to catching up when you can fit us into your busy schedule. P.S. Many thanks for putting our Library Accession Register on the site. I am curious why it does not appear in numerical order? Best wishes Belinda. Glenn Read

Congratulations to Glenn Read for all of his work in getting the project off the ground and running. His work with Ari in research and cataloguing has taken many hours with some assistance from John Dobeli . Well done team.
