Casey-Cardinia: Commemorating the Great War: 1914 - 1918 blog
We have a new blog - Casey-Cardinia: Commemorating the Great War: 1914 - 1918. You can find it here http://caseycardinia1914-1918.blogspot.com.au/ and there are also links to the blog from our home page www.cclc.vic.gov.au
The aim of this blog is to be a forum for commemorating and recording the impact of World War One on the people in the region now covered by the City of Casey and Shire of Cardinia - it will cover life on the home front, information about local soldiers and other personnel such as nurses and the development of local groups such as the Red Cross and Patriotic Groups. It will also look at the aftermath of the War and how communities commemorated their losses and service by the creation of Avenues of Honour and other memorials.
The blog will not be a chronological work - it will be an eclectic look at the Great War and it's impact on our area. There is also a list of interesting and useful websites relating to the War.
We welcome input - if you have any ideas or stories to share about local soldiers or nurses or stories about how your family lived through the war then I would love to hear from you. Contact me on email@example.com or ring me at the Narre Warren Library 9704 7696.
