Nunawading WW1 Stories
As part of the Anzac Centenary the Australian Institute of Genealogical Studies is undertaking a project to commemorate the lives of those Australians from the Nunawading area who served in any capacity during World War One.
They are seeking descendants of men from the present day areas of Nunawading, Blackburn, Mitcham and Vermont who served in this conflict and who may have stories and photos they would be willing to share.
A publication is planned to be released in August 2014.
