Local Lads to be remembered on Remembrance Day

Brian Colden Antill Pockley
The Society recently received an invitation from Neil Chippendale, Local Studies Librarian at Hornsby to attend an event at Hornsby Central Library.

The free event with  Elise Edmonds, a curator at the State Library of NSW, is on Wednesday 11 November at 6.30pm. Elise will give an insight and overview of the  Life Interrupted exhibition held at the State Library of New South Wales in 2014.

This exhibition featured diaries and letters written by soldiers, many of whom did not return home. Elise will be giving an overview of the collection and telling the story of how the State Library built their collection of World War One material.

Elise will also be reading out some excerpts from various diaries, including some local men who wrote diaries and letters. She will be featuring Dr Brian Colden Antill Pockley from Wahroonga and the Fry brothers from Lindfield.

You and your friends are all invited to this event  but you must register. Details here:
