Should you wish to seek further information on World War One service personnel please consult the National Archives of Australia for Personnel Dossiers and the Australian War Memorial for other biographical information.
A word of caution.
Most of the Howard and Shearsby images are taken from glass negatives,
some of which had been damaged before they were taken into the Society's
collection. The images have been copied as they appear - some mounted
on timber, others show significant damage but are largely intact. Every
effort has been made to identify individuals but this has been problematic.
Names have, in most cases, been etched into the reverse of the negative
but it is believed that the individual named may not always be the subject
There are also number of unidentified images. Information as to the identity of the individuals will be greatly appreciated - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Copies of the images may be purchased from the Society for personal use and research purposes. Please see http://www.yasshistory.org.au/archives.htm.
Many of those whose photographs appear in this gallery can be found in the publication 'We have not forgotten' :Yass & District's War by Cheryl Mongan and Richard Reid. The book, written as model for researching a community's involvement in war, covers a broad range of subjects including enlistment, active service, the work of community organisations, fundraising, personal correspondence, distribution of war trophies, honour rolls, commemoration and the aftermath of the war. Written in 1998 for the eightieth anniversay it covers the area of readership of the local Yass newspapers and lists the names of almost 300 dead and nearly 1,200 who returned. The publication is available from the society.
