Soldiers and nurses who were born, grew up went to school or whose families were significant in the small gold mining district of Hill End & Tambaroora in central west NSW (between Bathurst & Mudgee) are remembered in this work produced for the centenary of Anzac and Gallipoli. The work includes an overview of how the war affected the small community as well as biographical information on these local heroes, including those who were part of the Tunnellers. It is of interest to those with an interest in family and military history and includes previously unpublished photographs. It is the result of many years research and is based on the names on the original Honor Roll in the Hill End Public School and has been expanded to include all those soldiers identified in the military records as coming from the area. It has been further supplemented with material extracted from newspapers, war records and local publications, as well as personal family collections.
