This roll of honour is displayed in the Gwalia Museum, Moya Sharp kindly supplied the photograph as mine was very poor quality. You will see there are some Italian/Slav names, only those men born in Australia or who were naturalised were allowed to join the Australian forces. Others who were not naturalised may have been interned.

Gwalia is a former gold-mining town located 233 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie and 828 kilometres east of Perth in Western Australia's Great Victoria Desert. Today, Gwalia is essentially a ghost town, having been largely deserted since the main source of employment, the Sons of Gwalia gold mine, closed in 1963
