Kiama Scanathon

The day which was held on Tuesday 10th September was a great success with our volunteers made very busy with a raft of locals bringing along their WW1 treasures.

Included was a card signed by twelve Australian Victoria Cross winners, original maps, many postcards, and a flag signed by soldiers and nurses in a hospital.

We thank all who turned up on the day, sharing their memorabilia. We also thank our volunteers for giving up their time and showing great enthusiasm. This is of course an ongoing project, with many people who were unable to attend the day, bringing along material to be scanned.
