Trove Tuesday - Local boys respond to the Empire's Call

As our WWI biography project marches on, we find more articles in the newspapers of our local boys marching off to the Great War.
We found these recently in the Sydney Morning Herald:

- one a Barker College Roll of Honour,

- another from the Ku-ring-gai Recreation Club at Turramurra (now the Warrawee Club)

These are from quite early in the war, 1915 and 1916, so obviously the impact was already being felt back home.

These gems provide a great list of names for us but sometimes create more questions as no first names are given.

If you know any of these names, we would love to hear from you.

If you would like to join our very worthy project - researching and writing biographies of all those on local memorials, please contact us via khs@khs.org.au
