World War One – Roebourne

The City of Karratha is participating in the Remembering Them project to honour the 200 servicemen from Roebourne and surrounding areas who enlisted in World War I.

Their stories are told through images, text, objects and accounts from their families. The display is guided by the themes Those that went, Those that stayed and Those that returned.

Remembering Them is a project taking place in regional collections across Western Australia. Regional museums are working with the Western Australian Museum, Museums Australia WA Branch and the Royal Western Australian Historical Society to develop exhibitions about the impact of the First World War on their communities.
