Cessnock RSL Sub-Branch was first Chartered on the 8th August 1928. At that time its membership consisted of veterans returning from active service in the Boer and First World Wars. The Club received an updated charter on the 30th June 1987 by which time its membership had been expanded to include all those men and women who had served in the Defence Forces of Australia and her Allies.
