There will be an exhibition of memorabilia from the First World War which also includes carefully researched histories of some men who were Kojonup soldiers. Panels, courtesy of the Remembering them project, explore ‘Those who went’, ‘Those who waited’ and ‘Those who returned’. Remembering them is a project instigated by the WA Museum, Museums Australia WA Branch and Royal West Australian Historical Society assisting rural communities to develop exhibitions reflecting the impact of World War One on their communities. Display items include a 10th Light Horse saddle kit, various implements of war – such as bayonets, helmets and gas masks, sympathy cards and citations and much more.
This display purposely coincides with the Albany Anzac Commemorations to encourage people to stop a while in this highway town.
