Below is a list of many of those who served in the First World War who had connections with Monbulk or surrounding areas.
For each person you can click on the relevant link to see either a summary of their life and service history as compiled by Monbulk Historical Society and a link to the original service records held by the National Archives.
These ANZAC personal profiles have been compiled from a number of sources – Jeannie Gunn’s ‘My Boys’ book, Monbulk RSL Honour Roll and related records, records of the Monbulk Historical Society, AIF Project database, Ancestory.com.au records and the National Archives of Australia collection.
At times during compilation, there have been instances of incomplete or conflicting personal details. Jeannie Gunn’s own research was dependent in part on the recollections of the individuals and their families so is subject to the shortcoming of human memory. In some cases the individuals themselves intentionally provided wrong information such as stating an incorrect age at the time of enlistment.
We hope you enjoy reading these profiles and, learn something of those who served their country. Please reflect on both the achievements and tragedies that these profiles seek to capture.
