Maleny RSL receives telegram from
Joseph Cook, Australian Prime Minister

“War has broken out between Great Britain and Germany”

Andrew Powell presents telgram to Chris Brooker - Maleny RSL
On the 18th June, 2015 Local Member for Glasshouse has presented the Maleny RSL Sub Branch President Chris Brooker with a copy of the exchange of telegrams between Prime Minister Joseph Cook and Premier Digby Denham at the commencement of WWI.   These documents are the first official Queensland records of the outbreak of WW1.

The telegram was received on August 5th, 1914.   The Premier of the day immediately committed to Queensland not only sending service men and support personnel overseas but whatever other services required that the state could provide “in the service of Commonwealth an Mother Country.”

Now you can see a copy of these important historical  records which are on display at the Maleny RSL Hall.
