|Every year, on November 11, Australians take time to honour our fallen and wounded service men and women. To recognise those who have served in all our wars, Golf Australia, Legacy and the Australian Defence Force have partnered to initiate ‘Remembrance Golf Day’.|
During the week of Remembrance Day, Golf Australia encourages Golf Clubs around the country to raise funds for Legacy. A gold coin donation is asked of each player, in addition to their green or match fee. The funds raised will help Legacy support the families of our fallen and our wounded. Clubs and communities are also encouraged to host a competition or activity to raise additional funds for Legacy’s cause. Sponsors may also wish to contribute to this activity.
Currently serving and ex-service members will also be encouraged to participate, as will volunteers and supporters of Legacy.
|THEY SERVED US, NOW WE SHOULD REMEMBER THEM.|
9 - 16 NOVEMBER 2013
|Australia will come to a standstill at 11am on Remembrance Day, to observe a minute’s silence in gratitude to the great men and women who have died or suffered in armed conflicts for the sake of our country.|
Legacy needs your unwanted military memorabilia!
|Held every March/April and October at Milton Isbister Pavilion, Claremont Showgrounds, WA|
|Ever wondered what to do with the trunkful of dusty war souvenirs in the attic? Need an expert to provide a valuation for Grandad’s medals?|
For over 15 years, an expert team at Legacy in Western Australia have run twice-yearly Militaria Auctions, turning memorabilia into cash for families and providing hundreds of thousands of fundraising dollars for Legacy.
Each auction attracts up to 1,000 lots, ranging from simple regimental tiepins to medals, weapons, swords, bayonets, uniforms, books, military ephemera rights up to military trucks, jeeps and tracked gun carriers. Up to 200 collectors attend each event, held every March/April and October in Perth.
Legacy WA Fundraising Manager Richard Whitehead said: “For a commission of 15%, Legacy WA will professionally auction your military memorabilia. Medal sets for example, particularly with research, are very popular and there are always eager buyers for Japanese swords.”
