Honouring Those Who Served

Take a step back in time

On this walk we will visit 8 service persons who have been honoured with a flag. Samuel Ettingove who pleaded with Authorities saying that it was his earnest desire to enlist as a British Australian soldier and not as a Russian. Nevertheless, his obvious sincerity convinced the authorities, an exception was made and his naturalisation was expedited but never ended up fighting for his new found land as he was killed riding his Motor Bike which collided with a Tram. Also on the walk are Gershon Bennett, Richard Ernest Lowday and others. Come and hear the stories of these brave and courageous people.

This is part of the FLAG Commemoration where we will have 50 Australian Flags attached to a pole at the side of Veterans graves to publicly commemorate the role of our Men and Women during the Boer War, WW1 & WW2 – the flags [150] will be ‘flying’ from 21st April to the 1st May.
