ANZAC Day is just a few days away � on which millions of Australians will remember the men and women who fought for this country.

There were 849 Fremantle men who lost their lives during World War I, but few people today know their stories.

To commemorate these men, starting tomorrow the Gazette will be sharing one of these stories per day leading up to Anzac Day, from the 16-year-old so eager to fight he lied about his age, to the mother who saw not one but six sons sail from Fremantle to fight in the front line.

Visit the Fremantle Gazette Facebook and Twitter pages to read these stories.
