Blayney Shire Local and Family History Group has begun reseraching the service records of former district men and women who enlisted during World War I, some of whom are honoured on the various memorials throughout the Shire.
If you are a descendant or relative of one of these service men or women they would like your help with life stories, photographs or war time memorabillia.
The intention is to compile short biographies of the men and women related to the Blayney District who volunteered to serve far away from families and friends.
