Following on from previous talks about these willing combatants and their contribution, the talks at the Friends of ANZAC CottageOpen Day on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 1:45pm and 2:45pm will reveal where some of these men were living when they answered their call to arms, their family situation and, in some cases, their fate.
Pictured above left: Lieutenant Arthur Levetus who lost his life at Pozières. A poet, Lieutenant Levetus penned many poems during his service that 'drew a picture' of the situation faced by soldiers during battles (From Sunday Times via Trove nla.gov.au/nla.news-article58017289). Above right: Robert Wesson, a resident of Mount Hawthorn, wounded in the shoulder during his service in France (From Western Mail via Trov nla.gov.au/nla.news-article37992196).
