Today's Honour Roll
Don't Forget Me Cobber - 2018 Fundraising Luncheon
As we move towards the centenary of the Great War Armistice we should all remember that the freedoms and the lifestyle that we enjoy today have come at a price and that price has been paid by someone. The Virtual War Memorial is dedicated to the stories of the ordinary men and women who made a choice to do something extraordinary for their nation. We owe it to them not to forget them and what they did.
Join us as we continue to build this important Memorial – one story at a time. Your support will ensure all who served the nation in times of conflict are honoured and remembered.

How to Tell Your Story
William McBride is the name of the fallen soldier in Eric Bogle’s haunting ballad.
This video sums up what the site is about. We want to help you find your ‘Willy McBride’ and tell his story, so he is not ‘without a name, fading to yellow in an old leather frame’, hidden away on a library shelf or stashed in a shoe box in the attic.
