Names of locals who served in World War I are being sought for a memorial in Axford Park.
Vincent council is working with the Mt Hawthorn RSL to find the names to inscribe on the plaque, but records from those days are scant.
David Millar is a veteran of Vietnam and East Timor, and says the servicemen and women were under-recognised in their own time.
“After World War I, when they got home they were told to get off their backsides and go to work.”
Cr John Carey, whose dad Jack served in WWII, says these commemorations are important to remind people today what their parents and grandparents went through.
Mayor Alannah MacTiernan says along with names of local servicemen, the organisers are hoping people will come forward with ideas for how to commemorate the Anzac Day centenary on April 25, 2015. If you know of any locals who served in World War I, submit names by October 11 on 9273 6016 or firstname.lastname@example.org
