ANZAC Cottage in World War II

While ANZAC Cottage’s connections to World War I are well known and recognised, its role as a memorial was honoured and acknowledged during the next significant conflict, World War II.

This took on many forms by many people, including some of the community members who helped to build the Cottage and members of the Porter family who worked to ‘return the favour’.

This topic will be the focus of two talks on Sunday, August 6th at 1:30 and 2:30pm when the Friends of ANZAC Cottage host the Open Day entitled “ANZAC Cottage in World War II”.

A reminder, too, that the Friends of ANZAC Cottage are collecting information on servicemen and women who served in any conflict and who are or have been associated with the City of Vincent.

The Cottage, situated at 38 Kalgoorlie St, Mt Hawthorn, will be open from 1pm to 4pm on this day with free entry and afternoon tea available for a gold coin donation.
