April Newsletter for Downloading

Friday 8th - General Meeting & Guest Speaker

Only a few members were able to attend our April meeting most likely due to the on-going very wet weather. Those who were able to attend brought with them many items of memorabilia of the ANZAC and World War enlisted ancestors and relatives. We heard of a number of members' recollections of those who enlisted in a shared discussion. We also watched a video presentation on resources available to research Australian and New Zealand men in women who served in those World Wars.
