Front Cover, 2013 - History - 126 pages
Annandale's Great War: A Short Walk is Marghanita da Cruz's third book in a series, which explore today's Annandale, while delving into its past. This book is about Annandale in the decade between 1910 and 1920. Over 1200 locals left Annandale as members of the Australian Imperial Force or to join British regiments. This book provides a self guided tour of the World War 1 honour boards and memorials around Annandale and the ANZACs whose names appear on them. At home, there were also battles over conscription and between modes of transport. Marghanita da Cruz has been gathering an anecdotal history of Annandale, at ""Annandale on the Web"" since 1998. Marghanita guided this short walk as part of the Annandale Heritage Festival on 21 April 2013.
