On a grey rainy day in the World War one  battlefields at Pozieres, two diggers made a promise to look after one another’s wives if either survived the conflagration setting down upon them.

That was the beginning of Legacy, and the Torch flame as the symbol of Legacy has been carried from France, across Europe and Australia on the 100 year centenary of that day.  The Torch is due to arrive in Sydney’s Martin Place today, with Minister for Veterans Affairs Matt Thisthlethwaite, and Governor General – General Sir Peter Cosgrove.

The Torch then turns south to travel through the Riverina and on to Melbourne where it will end at the first Legacy branch.
