August 15 marks the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

Almost one million Australians served during the Second World War.

Legacy Australia would like to acknowledge the service and sacrifice those who served made for our country. Today, Legacy cares for thousands of veterans; families whose loved ones died or gave their health as a result of the Second World War.
Lest We Forget.

ABC Australia is broadcasting the National Commemorative Service at the Australian War Memorial , starting at 9.30am. Legacy Australia Chairman Rick Cranna will be laying a wreath on behalf of all Legacy Clubs. Pictured: The ‘Dancing Man’ celebrating the end of the war in George Street, Sydney on 15 August 1945.
