Remembering those who served
Next year marks one hundred years since the beginning of the First World War.
Local Studies is compiling a comprehensive list of men and women from the City of Canada Bay who served during the First World War.
The list will bring together names recorded on the Concord, Drummoyne and Five Dock war memorials together with those in the Drummoyne War Service Record and on honour rolls in local churches and schools.
It is believed that more than 2000 men and women from Canada Bay served in the First World War. The list will include not only those who enlisted from the area during the First World War but those who later lived in our community.
Please contact Local Studies (using the comments link below) if you are aware of names that should be included on the list. Additional biographical details and photographs are particularly sought, to put a face to the names on the memorials.
The panel, illustrated above, is held by the City of Canada Bay Museum. Unfortunately the names of the soldiers are unknown.
