The Badge of Legacy



Legacy has adopted as its badge the Torch, taken from the poem "In Flanders' Fields".

The symbolism of the Torch is explained below.


The Badge of Legacy symbolises in its torch the undying flame of service and sacrifice handed to us by our comrades in war who have passed on. In its wreath of laurel, with its points inverted in remembrance, is the guerdon of honour; that is the meed of those who gave their lives for their country.


The Legacy Ode



The Legacy Ode was adapted from the second verse of the American Poet RW Lilliard’s “An American Answer” written in 1918 as an answer to the challenge within "In Flanders' Fields". The Legacy Ode is often read at Legacy functions, meetings, handover lunches and dinners and at other special events.

Fear not that you have died for naught
The torch you threw to us we caught.
And now our hands will hold it high
Its glorious light shall never die,
We’ll not break faith with you who lie
On many a field

Lest we forget
