Maitland to get Gallipoli lantern

From the Maitland Mercury report:
A special Gallipoli lantern is to be presented to Maitland RSL Sub-Branch – one of 25 sub-branches to receive one - to commemorate 100 years since the landing in Turkey during World War I.
The presentation will be made to Maitland RSL president Eric Bell at a ceremony in Canberra on Friday.
“Our sub-branch was one of 25 selected to receive these Gallipoli lanterns from the federal government,” Mr Bell said.
“I will be honoured to bring this back to Maitland, where it will be available to all veterans’ groups and schools.”
