world war 1

Like men and women all over Australia, the people of Katanning and surrounding districts were keen to sign up to defend the Mother Country in its time of need.

In these pages I am attempting to research the total commitment of our young men and women during that time. If you know of anyone who should be included, and is not already here, please contact me at webmaster@lostkatanning.com. I will then attempt to follow up and give them their rightful place her.
