Where's my Dad - Legacy

|Valencia, Mount Tarampa QLD|
|My father died when I was 4 and half years old. I had a younger brother and 2 younger sisters. The baby of our family was born after our Dad died so he never got to meet her. Because of his Army service we become Legacy children. |
My first memories of Legacy is of a really nice man coming to visit us with boxes of food and offers of help for my Mother he was our assigned Legatee. But my Mother could not cope with 4 small children so she took us to our maternal Grandmothers house and left us there.
Every Friday night Hobart Legacy had a get together for the children and a few times I went along and thoroughly enjoyed mixing with other children who had also lost their Dads. We had been given a new Legatee who would call in to check on us from time to time.
As a child I loved Christmas for two reasons, the first naturally was that we would get presents, the second was thanks to Legacy. Every year they had a Christmas camp which I and my brother and sisters attended as they become old enough to go. It was at my last Legacy camp that I met my husband. Those camps were the best days of my young life.
