Many of you will know of the Roll of Honour at the Australian War Memorial.

"Surrounding the courtyard and glimpsed through arched cloisters is the Roll of Honour. Here are inscribed in bronze the names of virtually every Australian who has died in war since 1885 more than 102,000 people. Australia is one of the few nations able to name its war dead so completely. Walking past the Roll gives an impression of the magnitude of this loss. Many visitors insert paper poppies in the niches of the Roll of Honour, next to a name that has significance for them"

But you may be unable to visit the AWM.

If you would like a photograph of the name of a relative, research subject etc then let me know and I will be happy to oblige.

If you go here - https://www.awm.gov....roll_of_honour/ - you can search the Roll and you will get this - https://www.awm.gov....on.asp?p=488552 - let me have:

Name
Unit
Panel number

I will be at the AWM probably next Thursday, 22 March.

Cheers

Paul

Hi Tony,

I've been search for alot of info relating to my 'uncles time in Aus so had a quick search for your relative whilst online, found this:

Roll of Honour - Frances Emma Hines

there is a photo of her and her colleagues on that link.

Frances Emma Hines's name is located at panel 3 in the Commemorative Area at the Australian War Memorial



Best wishes,

Thanks Paul, PM sent.
For the record of service I started by adding just what I knew, then I started looking into my family history. Lots of big families, I have continued to find more and more and now am between two minds, is it getting too big or am I doing the wrong thing by leaving some out. I think that the historian King found that he had twenty ancestors who served at Gallipoli alone.

Cheers again Clarke
