How we honoured our soliders

Local History Librarian, Heather Arnold will look at the various ways communities honoured soldiers once the War ended. 

Heather will look at Avenues of Honour, War Memorials and memorial buildings such as halls, schools and hospitals.

 

 

Researching your military history

Saturday 18 November - 1.00pm

There is more to a service person than name, rank and serial number. Join us for a 90 minute talk that will explore the many avenues available on the internet and in your library, to gather the information you need to write their story.

It may be a soldier sent to Sydney Cove with the First Fleet, a bushman in the Great Boer War, a great uncle in the Great War or a father in the Second World War. Nurses, sailors, airmen and civilians also have a story to tell.

Members of the Narre Warren and District Family History Group and Local History Librarian Heather Arnold will be available to help you find your soldier.
