The Ryde goes to War project is researching the stories of those who lived in or had a connection to the Ryde District of NSW, up to or during World War One [see earlier posts for details].
We are continuing sorting up to 2000 names from across all our district war memorials and similar sources and to sort out any duplications etc, so that we can honour them with their full names and service numbers. With the help of Society members, descendants and family & friends, we are also putting together the details of their service and their connections to the Ryde district.
We are planning to publish some of this research in book a format in 2015 (to date --the exact names of all to be included and format of publication, are still being confirmed).
The Northern District Times stories that commenced this month are a brief outline of some of our completed work.
