Free sample

The scene is set in the preface which is based on stretcher bearer Clarence Oscar Power's diary. Power recorded a personal account of the passage to Europe, the evacuation of Gallipoli and then the war in Europe.

The book provides an illustrated history of Annandale in the decade 1910 to 1920 & 1810-1820, when over 1200 locals left Annandale as members of the Australian Imperial Force or to join British regiments. Written as a a self guided tour of the World War 1 honour boards and memorials around Annandale read the stories of the ANZACs whose names appear on them.

 At home, there were battles over conscription and Rozelle Bay. A Rail Viaduct was constructed on the Annandale foreshore, to carry the Rail freight line around the bay rather than over it, via an opening bridge.
