The foundation of the information on this page was copied from the prize winning publication Canterbury's boys : World War I & Sydney's suburban fringe. This book is the culmination of 12 years (1988-2000) research by a team of volunteers from Canterbury and District Historical Society led by Dr Lesley Muir. Without this team's effort and dedication and the Society's willingness and support, this information would not be available today.


An uneditable version of the book Canterbury's boys : World War I & Sydney's suburban fringe is in the eBook section of this wiki. In the main section, there is an alphabetical list of the 1,911 individuals recorded in the book - the list is titled Canterbury's Boys list. Every name is linked to an editable version of the individual’s biography copied from the Canterbury’s Boys book. The editable biographical files have been created to provide the space for descendants, historians, researchers, etc to add to these files, any further information, photographs, newspaper articles, memories, etc. they have discovered so it is available for this and future generations.
