|Legacy Week 2015|
|For each serving Australian who risks everything - a family does the same. Australians will have the chance to show their support for these very special families by buying a badge during Legacy Week, August 30 to September 5, 2015.|
As one of Australia’s most iconic charities, Legacy grew out of the ashes of the Great War and still supports around 90,000 families of Defence personnel who have given their lives or their health for their country.
Australia has lost just over 100,000 service men and women in all conflicts with many, many more badly injured, both mentally and physically. In WWI alone around 60,000 service men and women were killed with another 60,000 losing their lives in the following 10 years as a result of their service.

Our book giveaway is back! We are giving away 5 copies of the Tunnel Rats Vs The Taliban by Jimmy Thomson and Sandy MacGregor.
This is the extraordinary story of Australian sappers on the frontlines of the war in Afghanistan.
They were young, they were tough and they were everywhere. They were both the backyard builders and the frontline troops in Australia's war against the Taliban.
