Strathfield-Homebush District Historical Society has collaborated with Strathfield Council in preparing a new exhibition.
Strathfield Answers the Call 1914-1918 explores how the people of Strathfield and Homebush participated in the events of WWI on the battlefront and at home.
This exhibition shares the stories from the Strathfield and Homebush district in supporting a war fought far from home.
