Australian Light Horse Centenary Project

Congratulations to the twelve successful applicants for the Rona Tranby Trust Australian Light Horse Project.

Read a special message from the Prime Minister, the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP.

As descendants of Indigenous soldiers of the WW1 Australian Light Horse, the participants will research their ancestors' stories and travel to Israel to take part in the ANZAC National Centenary Service to commemorate the Battle of Beersheba and the Allied Sinai-Palestine campaign.

Read about the recipients.

An official presentation took place at 10am on Sunday 13th August at Tranby National Indigenous Adult Education and Training, Glebe Sydney, with the Hon Julian Leeser MP (representing the Minister for Veteran Affairs the Hon Dan Tehan MP and the Australian Government) and guest speaker Prof John Maynard.
