A CEREMONIAL torch was carried through Frankston last week to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Legacy charity.
The Legacy Centenary Torch Relay 2023 began in April in France. The torch was then carried to London, where it was greeted by King Charles III, before travelling onto Australia to pass through the 44 national Legacy clubs.
Last Wednesday, 27 September, the torch passed through the Mornington Peninsula. It began at Schnapper Point before travelling to Mornington Memorial Park, Rupert White Reserve, and finally the Frankston War Memorial for the lighting of the cauldron.
This leg of the torch relay was completed by Anne Hill, Ron Chidgey, Roger Beacall, and Jim Dickson.
Legacy was established in 1923 to support veterans and their families in the wake of World War I. It still supports the families of veterans today.
