LOCAL HEROES WHO SERVED IN THE ARMED FORCES DURING WWII

-

These are photographs of men who served in the armed forces during World War II. Under each is the Servicemen's name and details of service, including place and date of death. To commemorate their service for our country and the Gladstone Region, these Servicemen had streets named in their honour. Unfortunately, not all portraits appear in this collection as some have been returned to their families.

Original Portrait Photographs on loan from Gladstone RSL sub-branch Inc. Photographed by Mike Richards MGR Photography.
