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.
