The first ANZAC Program events is coming up! Come along at the Liverpool City Library for the launch of the exhibition ‘Liverpool Remembers’ and the publication ‘Our Liverpool Boys’.

‘Our Liverpool Boys’ is a publication which shares the stories of a number of Liverpool soldiers who gallantly fought during the Great War, many making the ultimate sacrifice. Come to the launch to receive your FREE copy of this special publication.

Produced by Council’s family history unit, the publication will share the stories of Liverpool soldiers who gallantly fought during the Great War, many making the ultimate sacrifice.

The ‘Liverpool Remembers’ exhibition contains a selection of archival images of Liverpool Camp and the Battalions that were stationed there before embarking for the war front during World War I.

On display are some rare materials from the Library’s Heritage Collection relating to WWI, including French/Australian flags from Villers-Bretonneux and a poignant message in a bottle written by soldiers on their way to war.

It also recognises some of the many soldiers with a connection to Liverpool whose
names have been recorded on the Honour Boards which can be viewed at Liverpool Library.
