Share your fam­ily’s war sto­ries

Isis Town and Country - - News -

DO YOU have in­for­ma­tion about a fam­ily mem­ber who served in the First World War?

Don’t let it gather dust at home – the Town & Coun­try would love to tell their story to a wider au­di­ence.

As we build up to the 100th an­niver­sary of the An­zac Cove land­ings in April 2015, we want to com­mem­o­rate the lo­cal peo­ple whose ef­forts made a dif­fer­ence dur­ing the war.

This may have been as a sol­dier or nurse in the theatre of con­flict, or per­haps some­one on the home front who sup­ported the troops from afar.

What­ever their con­tri­bu­tion, the key to hon­our­ing their piece of the puz­zle may lie with you.

Bring your in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing pho­tos, to our of­fice at Suite 1, 65 Churchill St, or email us at ad­min@isistc­news.com.au.

And don’t for­get to fol­low our Cen­te­nary Mile­stones se­ries, which marks some of the key moments in the First World War.

The next mile­stone will ap­pear on Satur­day, Au­gust 9, and will fo­cus on the Aus­tralian vol­un­teer troop recruitment ef­fort, the in­cep­tion of the Aus­tralian Red Cross move­ment and the fail­ure of con­scrip­tion.
