Special acknowledgement

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 names in the book with a link to the biography copied from the book about each individual. The alphabetical list is titled Canterbury's Boys list. The biographical files are editable, created to provide the space for descendants, historians, researchers, etc to contribute any further information, photographs, newspaper articles, memories, etc. they may have discovered so it is available for this and future generations.
