Local Soldiers of the Great War

24 April 2015

The declaration of war on Germany in 1914 saw many men and women from the Blacktown district enlist to join the 'big adventure'.

To coincide with the Centenary of the Great War, Blacktown City Libraries has compiled a list of soldiers and nurses who fought for Australia.

The list has been compiled with information from Hazel Magann, President of the Mount Druitt Historical Society; Riverstone and District Historical Society’s publication “Riverstone and the First World War” ; the National Archives of Australia “Discovering ANZACS” website and the ADFA “AIF Project” database.
