Black and white photo of a class of Legacy boys in a garage.
A photo of a class of young legatees in 1951, in a garage, called the East Brighton Group. There are 29 boys, of various ages, in gymnastic gear with the Legacy logo on the chest and 4 men who could be the instructor and a Legacy member. Legacy clubs ran classes for junior legatees for many years, such as gymnastics and swimming classes. It was part of providing for the children of their deceased comrades. The skills they learned were show cased in an annual demonstration usually at the Melbourne Town Hall. It appears to be photo taken professionally, as there are several photos of different classes (see 00862 - 00867) perhaps to record Legacy classes for promotion purposes. The notes on the back mentioned there are 6 other groups of boys (perhaps those in Kew, Fitzroy, Footscray, Malvern and Auburn in the other photos mentioned).
The names are: From the left, rear: L/. W Blackall, Bob Watson, Leon Wicks, L/. Evans, Bill Luck, Kev Gleeson, David Endean, Rex Mason, Douglas Grigg, Don Paulson, Bernard Hubbard, Bob Lancaster, Neville Trevena, Alan Barrett, Bob Gleeson, Eric Scott, Doug Wylie, Bill Gleeson, Mr G. Nelson Instr., Mr H. Singleton Instr.
Front: Don Scott, Peter Luck, Tony Minogue, Gavan Carr, Warwick Leeming, Peter Marsh, John McLennan, Bruce Grigg, Robin Barker, Stephen Westcott, Barry Larkam, Roger Falahey, Tom Cocksam.
