Keeping History Alive: WWI Talk
A large crowd enjoyed learning more about the men and women of WWI at the Orange and District Historical Society History Alive Talk held on Wednesday night. Librarian Trudi Mayfield showed guests the WWI Blog, outlined research behind some of the stories including the youngest enlisted recruit from Orange Ernest Powter who signed up at age 15. Fellow guest speaker local author Michael Caulfield spoke about the research undertaken for his book The Unknown ANZACS and the importance of recording our history. Thank you to everyone who came along.
