Postcards released

SCAN0401 (Small)

To coincide with the display at Five Dock Library and the Centenary of Anzac, a set of seven postcards have been released.

The postcard images are those used in the light boxes on display at Five Dock Library and were subjects of the ‘More than just a name’ video project.

The postcard, above, is of Sergeant Francis McGraw of Five Dock who enlisted in March 1916. He served in France and was awarded the Military Cross. He died of gas poisoning on 25 April 1918, aged 28 years (Australian War Memorial photograph H06524). Other postcards show Stephen Grimsley, Stanley Watson, the Seabrook brothers, Eric Stutchbury, Walter Broooks, Harold Henley and Thomas Henley.

The postcards are available free from Five Dock and Concord libraries.
