In 2015, to commemorate the Centenary of Gallipoli, Council published a special edition of Talking Points 'Centenary of Gallipoli'. pdf (887KB)
In the process of putting together this publication, we embarked on the task to list the names of all local residents who served during World War I. These are residents who were born here or moved here after the war was finished.
We have found a list of names from various sources (these can be viewed in the publication), but we believe there are others who should be included.
If you know of someone from West Torrens who served during World War I, and we can verify their service by checking available records, please let us know so that we can include their names in a special commemoration, to be unveiled on Remembrance Day in 2018 in the West Torrens’ War Memorial Gardens.
We have included below a searchable list of the names that we have found, as well as a form for you to upload names of those who may have been missed. Please include all details so that we can verify their records.
More information can be found on the website Discovering ANZACs
