‘I’ve been totally let down’
NOT EVERYONE is happy with the RSL Queensland tribunal’s decision to ban Isis RSL sub-branch president Roy Owen for six months.
Glen Tancred is one of the men who complained to the RSL about Mr Owen, but the Vietnam veteran will now no longer have anything to do with the RSL.
“I’m s****y,” Mr Tancred said on Friday. “Seven months of this and it goes down the tube.”
Mr Tancred and several colleagues had just unsuccessfully attempted to force Mr Owen to hand over the keys to the building, and he was so unhappy with the way the RSL handled the process he said he would cancel his membership.
“I don’t care now,” Mr Tancred said.
“We’re trying to do the right thing by the club. The club belongs to Childers. It’s not owned or run by the public but it is Childers’ club.
“I feel I’ve been totally let down.”
Mr Tancred said he was considering taking the issue to the national body.
