In recognition of the 100th anniversary of World War One, over the past fifteen months, the Society, together with others, has been publishing profiles of soldiers and nurses in the North Central Review. This has created a lot of interest and we will be holding a seminar to show how we carry out the research in preparing these profiles. There will be a presentation, followed by a question and answer session and an opportunity to chat over afternoon tea with the researchers of the profiles.
Representatives of the Kilmore RSL will be present to answer questions on issues such as medals and diaries, etc.
