The new book detailing all those with a Tenterfield connection who served in WW1 met its deadline of Armistice Day 2018, officially launched by Mayor Peter Petty at the Dining In ceremony at Tenterfield Memorial Hall on November 10.
Cr Petty said he considered it one of his greatest honours to be involved in the launch of Sometime We’ll Understand.
“The book embodies all the work of the (ANZAC Centenary Steering) Committee, supported well by the RSL,” he said.
“The research involved in unbelievable.”
Cr Petty stressed it will be a living document, with more information added as future editions roll out. Each print run will be small to allow for amendments.
He said the book serves as a lasting legacy of the committee as it winds down now that its work is done.
“It was a fantastic group to be involved in.”
RSL Sub-branch president Dave Stewart said all due credit goes to Jan Friar for the enormous amount of research she undertook. He expects more information to come from family connections as the book is circulated.
It’s available now at the council office for $35.
