    Thanks to all who welcomed Dad today at the golf club, he had a great time. his great grand daughter pushed hard to be with him today, she is in year 12 and lives out west near Parkes, her mother made a big effort to get her there. thanks again.

    image.jpeg This is my fathers photo John William Kitchener Delaney. He was a bombardier in the 2/9th. Sadly he passed away in 1973 aged 57. He would have been 100 this year. I would like to attend the Anzac service at Chatswood Golf Club if it is being held this year. Please has anyone information on this

    Hi Trish,
    I attended last years service and will be there again this year. I get there at 8 but I think it starts at 8.30. Am pretty sure that it will be on again this year.

    Hello. Have recently purchased a photo album that belonged to a member of the 2/9th. His name was William Charles Connell (VX18095). Although there are not many personal photos in it, there are a few which mention other soldiers. Most of the album is made up of souvenir postcards from Syria. We have a war history museum on our farm on the south coast of WA. Coincidentally, we have a large scale metal model of a 25 pounder so I will put the album next to it.

    Best regards,
    Albany, W.A.

    Richard [ Dick ] has been asked to participate at his great grand daughters Anzac Day ceremonies, as school captain she will deliver the address. So Dick [ 98 in may ] will travel to Orange, go to the Dawn service with son Bob and grand son Ian, then travel west a couple of hours to participate in the street march and Anzac service, returning home when he feels like it.
