The Rona Tranby Trust (RTT) has provided Awards to 12 descendants of WW1 Indigenous soldiers to
record the stories of their ancestors.
The RTT will also support the descendants’ travel to Be’er Sheva, Israel to take part in the Australian
Government ANZAC National Service on 31st October 2017 to commemorate the
Centenary of the Battle of Be’er Sheva and the Sinai-Palestine Campaign.
The RTT Australian Light Horse Project is a unique & exciting project
that we hope will make a significant contribution to the commemoration events at Be’er Sheva,
to the historical & cultural record of WW1 and to Reconciliation in Australia.

Services, Deidre Bear, ECAJ Centenary of Anzac Planning Committee, Roland Gridiger, Jewish National
