Historical information

In 1955 the Executive Officer of Melbourne Legacy, Ivan Layton, composed a song for the Junior Legatees to sing. It was lift out supplement to the Newsletter on 9 June 1955.
The lyrics are:
We are the children of Legacy and we're proud as proud can be.
A burning torch we carry high, the symbol of Legacy.
Our fathers left Australia to fight for you and me and gave their lives unselfishly:
So their comrades-in-arms took up the torch and help us like their very own.
The rendering of service means Legacy, and Legacy means all to us.


The song published shows the sentiment of the children that Legacy cared for.
