Historical information
Nearing the 60th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings The Herald newspaper interviewed former light horsemen including Legatees Rex Hall and Bill Scott. The caption of the photo mentions that they would be leading the Anzac march mounted on horseback that year.
The rest of the article by John Hamilton describes the Gallipoli campaign.
The article was part of a collection of photographs in an album of Comradeship activities (from 1930 to 1977) see items 01027 to 01036.
When Made
1975
Significance
A record of two legatees recounting their war experiences in the press. It was included in the Comradeship photo album. The Comradeship photo album was put together by the Comradeship committee and records events that Legatees did and places they lived or visited. Some appear to be trips to visit other Legatees living overseas and social occasions held in different places. It shows the bond that Legatees have with each other.
