  • 1942: The Constitution of the League was amended to undertake the training and re-establishment of disabled servicemen of the Second World War. The name was changed to The Disabled Servicemen's Re-establishment League.
  • 1969: The League was appointed a government agent for both ex-servicemen and civilians from 1 April 1969. The name was changed to The Disabled Re-establishment League.
