Abstract:
"Two hundred and seventy-six names are inscribed on the honour boards in Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Dulwich Hill. These are all men associated with the parish who served their king and country in the war of 1914-18. More than fifty men who are listed
never returned home to Australia. The bodies of many of these men were never found and, thus, they have no known grave. The men whose names are recorded on these boards played a part in most of the major campaigns and engagements of the Great War: from Gallipoli to Fromelles and Pozières, Bullecourt and Beersheba, Passchendaele and Ypres, and finally, the attacks on the Hindenburg Line in 1918. There are scores of tragic stories, including the deaths of six sets of brothers. Two sets of brothers died on the same day, the Hennell boys at Lone Pine in August 1915 and the McLeods at Fromelles in July 1916. The Keens, the Comptons, the Larsons, and the Luscombes also lost two sons to the war, but not on the same day. In addition to the more than fifty who died, scores more were wounded and nearly a dozen were decorated for their gallantry and service. John Coleman's engaging and thoughtful illustrated tribute to these men and their families is a worthy contribution to the rich social history of the city of Sydney, and the Inner West in particular."--Synopsis from back cover.
