Read the stories of four locals who served our nation in four very different ways. Click below to read their stories online or visit the commemorative zone in-centre.

John Hook
​​Our WWII survivors are now well into their late 80s and 90s. One such man is John Hook, and whilst the then 18 year old was lucky his service did not put him on the front line, what he experienced was still horrific. Read John's story.

Dal Crocker
"My only contact with other veterans was on Anzac day when my four mates and I would come together. We never marched, however being together was our way of getting over the war..." Read Dal's story. 

Denis Rowlands
"I was drafted into National Service during July 1968 and trained at Puckapunyal, before being sent to Ingleburn and Canungra..." Read Denis' story

Bill Telfer
"We'd write to each other every week and 12 months after we met I went home to pop the question. On my next leave, we married..." Read Bill's story.
