Great War 20 remembered
HONOURING LOCALS WHO DID NOT RETURN
TWENTY young men from South Perth and districts did not return from the Great War in 1918.
On Tuesday, the community will gather to remember those men at a Remembrance Day Service in South Perth.
The service will commemorate the cessation of hostilities in the Great War of 1914-1918, which ended at 11am on November 11, 1918.
The 96th anniversary of the end of the war will be remembered in South Perth by RSL members, council members, local members of parliament and Major Elgayar of the Pilbara Regiment.
South Perth RSL member Kevin Trent said that with the interest in the recent farewell in Albany and Fremantle, it was right to turn attention to those who did not return.
He said the first local man to fall was Bob Pennington.
He died of wounds sustained at Gallipoli on July 10, 1915.
