Remembering them: People of St George and the First World War

Hurstville Museum & Gallery commemorates the Anzac centenary in 2015 with an exhibition showcasing the First World War experiences of men and women of the St George area and how we remember them today.

Personal stories will come to life through soldiers' diary and letter extracts. Many of the objects on display are family treasures preciously kept for generations and generously loaned to the Museum & Gallery for this exhibition. One highlight on display from the Hurstville City Library Museum & Gallery collection are the pictorial honour rolls portraying over 200 photographs of soldiers that had an association with the Hurstville area.

The exhibition runs from 31 January - 31 May 2015 and will include a range of exciting public programs.
