First World War : Whittlesea

Latest : Most files updated October, 2017  The Great War and its impact of the Shire of Whittlesea, spread across many small towns and hamlets, and also including the former Shire of Epping after a little-known merger of the two in 1915

The In Memoriam Rolls and Enlistments Rolls include one addition resulting from a two-month exercise in reviewing  around 17,500 Attestation Papers in the National Archives of Australia that incorrectly show the Place Of Birth in the Search Headers as “Melbourne” where the actual entry shows a suburb or town    

This is pretty much the last of any of this material as every avenue possible has been investigated and the chances of additions are about as likely as a lightning strike - early 2017 has also seen the end - finally after about five years  - of National Archives loading of MT1486/1, the records of those that volunteered but who did not serve for a variety reasons
