WWI Exhibition – delayed

The Strathfield-Homebush District Historical Society has been working with Strathfield Council in developing an exhibition on WWI, which is focused on the Strathfield district and its people who participated in the war effort.  Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 Virus, the exhibition will be delayed, probably to later in 2020.  However, if you have any information on relatives or stories concerning WWI and local people or events of this period (1914-1918), please contact us email: strathfieldhistory@gmail.com or call Cathy on 9642 3145.
