Monto war stories are now available at click of a button
THE recently premiered documentary on Monto veterans is now available for viewing online.
Local Voices, Living Stories: Monto Remembers Its Anzacs can be played on North Burnett Regional Council’s website.
On northburnett. qld.gov.au, the public is advised to look under the library services section to see the documentary.
Mayor Rachel Chambers looks forward to the wider community having easy access to this aspect of the region’s history.
“The project has raised community awareness of some of the region’s outstanding residents, and is not only a lovely tribute to the featured soldiers, but is a unique way to preserve our significant local histories for generations to come,” she said.
Another way to view the documentary series is to pick it up in DVD form.
The series of five mini documentaries explores local serviceman’s lives, wartime and post-war experiences and contribution to Monto, as told by their descendants.
It was funded through the Queensland Government’s Queensland Anzac Centenary Grants program.
