The Ryde Goes to War Project began in 2011 when members of the Ryde District Historical Society began a project of identifying all men and women from the Ryde Municipality who participated in World War I.

 The Ryde Municipality is part of the Sydney region NSW, Australia and today includes the suburbs of Ryde, North Ryde, Macquarie Park, Chatswood West, Marsfield, Eastwood, Denistone, Denistone East, Denistone West, West Ryde, Melrose Park, Meadowbank, Putney, Tennyson Point, Gladesville and East Ryde.

To date a large list of names collated from various war memorial, honour boards, service records, etc. has been compiled with the view to identifying these men and women and collating any pictures and information relating to their connection to Ryde.

This is an ongoing project and we will post up-dates on this blog as it develops.

If you have any information that could help or would like to help our research project -- please contact the Ryde Goes to War Project Coordinator   -  Kim Phillips :
