Commemorating the Kangaroo March Re-enactment

Angela Williamson, on behalf of the Kangaroo March Re-enactment that passed through Jerrawa, Dalton, Gunning and Breadalbane, was in attendance on Wednesday, March 28, complete with period costume, to present commemorative plaques to members of the local communities who made the march so welcome two and a half years ago.

Lucy Knight from Gunning and Doreen Duncan from Jerrewa accepted the plaques as a token of the march organisers’ thanks for the amazing community support, and a reflection of the depth on engagement in the significance on the WWI recruitment to the local communities.

The plaques will be installed at locations that were significant to the re-enactment as part of later WW1 commemorations.
