Anzac commemoration
The main focus of our April meeting will be to commemorate Anzac. Last June, Simon Burgess completed the Kokoda Trek. Simon’s grandfather was a soldier with the AIF on Kokoda fighting the Japanese in World War II. Simon will describe his trek and the experience of walking in the footsteps of his grandfather.
We will also watch a 15 minute film that describes the experience of Malcolm Chisholm – he is believed to be the first Australian killed in World War I, months before the Gallipoli campaign. Malcolm’s mother was Thomas Mitchell’s sister and he was the uncle of our Society member Honor Auchinleck.
Speaker: Simon Burgess
