World War 1


To mark the centennary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli, we are pleased to present the results of a most important project of discovering as much information as possible about the many men (and women) who served in the First War, and whose names have been taken from the various memorials and honour boards in Kangaroo Island, and/or appeared in the K.I. Courier at the time. The project will probably never finish. If you can add or correct any information, particularly their Kangaroo Island connection, please contact the webmaster.
