Although this event was a very courageous one considering the dark clouds of war forming over Europe again in 1938. The Burleigh ANZAC’s carried on the tradition during the second world war years by commemorating our war dead. Considering Burleigh was a small seaside village, the sub-branch was struggling to survive and towards the late forties started to recruit some of the younger 2nd AIF boys, thereby ensuring their continuance. In 1953, the Members, under the Presidency of Kevin Snee (2nd AIF), acquired a state government grant of land and built a community hall on Sixth Ave in Burleigh. The hall was completed in 1956 and still stands today as a testimony to those original and new ANZAC’s.
