This project aims to give Aboriginal soldiers who participated in World War One (WWI) the recognition that they deserve. Our research has been conducted using primary sources, for example the Australian War Memorial (AWM) archives, and secondary sources such as books. To the best of our ability we have cross-checked information. Our intention was to bring together material related to Aboriginal soldiers who participated in WWI and who had connections with the Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury areas, New South Wales. Our hope is that this website will provide a useful resource. We do not have the capacity to update or change it now that the project funding has been expended.
