The Charter of Legacy

The Spirit of Legacy is Service.

The care of dependants of those who served their country; namely
veterans who died on operational service or subsequently, and
Australian Defence Force personnel who died as a result of their service,
affords a field for service.

Safeguarding the interests of dependants, especially children,
is a service worth rendering.

Personal effort is the main essential.

Inasmuch as these are the activities of Legacy,
it is our privilege to accept the legacy of the fallen.

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.
