In April 2008, the Fleurieu Peninsula Family History Group held a special memorial service as part of our normal monthly meeting. Members were invited to bring along items of interest belonging to family members who had served in any theatre of war.
As part of that display, the names and details of men and women from the Fleurieu Peninsula were extracted from various repositories, such as the Australian War Memorial, and compiled for presentation on the day.
The following are links to the information extracted for the memorial presentation -
