A Spotted Gum tree commemorates the 50th year of the Australian Legion of Ex-Servicemen and Women which was formed in 1944 and is dedicated to all who serve. 

The Australian Legion of Ex-Servicemen and Women is an ex-service association. Formed in December 1944 from a number of existing organisations, membership of the legion is open to all ex-service personnel, including British Commonwealth and Allied personnel, and former members of the peace-time Australian regular and reserve forces. The legion has branches in each state, and sub-branches in major cities and towns, with its national headquarters located in Melbourne, Victoria.
