Buying badges is our Legacy

By RENEE REDMOND

THE slouch hat is an iconic symbol for Anzac Day, and Wilson McClelland is urging the people of Lismore to part with $5 for the badge and wear it proud.

The City of Lismore RSL Sub-branch secretary said Legacy miniature slouch hat and tin hat ($2) badges will be on sale from today.

They will be sold by volunteers who will be hitting the industrial estates on Thursday and the Lismore CBD on Friday.

"The sale of Anzac Day Legacy badges keeps the sub-branch in operation," he said. "The money raised is shared between the United Returned Soldiers Fund and the Lismore sub-branch.

"The sub-branch does about 100 man-hours a week in hospital visits, welfare work and various other jobs for the welfare of the ex-service members of the community."

On Monday (Anzac Day), the public is asked to gather at 4.45am outside the old Post Office in Molesworth Street to take part in the march that begins at 4.55am.

The march is followed by a service at 5am at the Lismore Memorial Baths, Molesworth Street.

Veterans and their families are invited to the Lismore Workers Club for the traditional Anzac Day breakfast after the service.
