On a mission to ensure ANZAC legacy not forgotten

FILLING in any gaps of Australian war history they might have, Bankstown RSL Sub-Branch members visited local schools, including Bankstown Public, in the lead up to and following ANZAC Day.

Sub-Branch President Terry Corcoran says the students are always very interested to ask questions and he thinks it is important to dispel any fake news – such as the Holocaust never happening – which might arise from young people growing up without appreciating the nation’s history.
“My grand-daughters and nieces go to schools outside of the area where ANZAC talks are not common and I think that’s a real shame,” the Vietnam veteran said.
“That’s why Bankstown Sub-Branch goes out each year, at the invitation of local schools, to keep the connection with the young people going.
“We take an active interest in keeping all ages aware of the sacrifices made and the cost of our freedom.”
