Nunawading Volunteers

As part of the ANZAC Centenary the AIGS will be producing a booklet commemorating the lives of those Australians from the Nunawading area who served in any capacity during WW1.

We are seeking descendants of those who enlisted to serve in this conflict from the present day areas of Nunawading, Blackburn, Mitcham and Vermont and who may have stories, photos etc. they would be willing to share.

The launch of this publication is planned for Sunday, 3rd August, 2014 at the Blackburn RSL, Diggers Walk, Blackburn.

To inquire about contributing to this booklet, send an email to Shirley as aigspublicity@gmail.com or phone (03) 9872 3189
