You need to tell Subversion that you want to use them by setting the
svn:keywords property.

Right-click the file, go to TortoiseSVN and select Properties. Then
New -> Keywords (assuming that svn:keywords isn't already listed) and
check the corresponding box(es).

See http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-propertypage.html#tsvn-dug-propertypage-props

Once you commit that property change, future checkouts/updates will
update the values when appropriate.

From the command line: svn propset svn:keywords "Revision Date" MYFILE
