I'm enquiring as to whether you can give me any information about the Lone Pine (a descendant of the original Aleppo lone Pine brought back from Anzac Cove after world war one) which was planted at the Birregurra Golf course in 1993 by the RSL for Legacy. I have photographed it, met with the President Des Read and also taken a photograph of post 9 on the Heritage trail which is at the tee to the second tee known as Niagara. If any of the ones who took part in planting the tree or who organized the planting of the tree would be greatly appreciated. Photo's of these gents is on the Heritage trail plaque. If you want to contact me by telephone No is 52438881. Thank you
