Our first contingent of WWI servicemen left from Fremantle in October 1914 and sadly many were never to see these shores again.
But what of those who may have survived the landing but suffered injuries and/or illness in this conflict?
The Friends of ANZAC Cottage invite you to our “Coming Home” Open Day at ANZAC Cottage on July 2nd, 2017 from 1pm to 4pm to find out more.
The day will feature two talks at 1:30 and 2:30 where we discuss the return of these wounded and sick servicemen on the first two troopships to return to WA in July 1915.
ANZAC Cottage is located at 38 Kalgoorlie St, Mt Hawthorn and offers free entry, with afternoon tea available for a gold coin donation.
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.
For more information on the Open Day or on the collection of veterans’ details please contact Anne by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0411 44 55 82.
