Epping RSL new home for Thomastown honour board and plaque

The Whittlesea Leader this week reports that the Epping RSL are now proud custodians of an almost 100 old honour board and plaque commemorating locals who served in World War One. After five years in storage, the heavy marble plaque was mounted in the Thomastown Methodist Church following World War 1. The Church was sold in 2003 and recent moves will soon see it being proudly displayed at the Epping RSL.

The board honours four soldiers from the Thomastown area who died in the War including Private Fred Dyer.

To research a World War One solider search the Roll of Honour at the Australian War memorial and digitised service records at the National Archives of Australia.
