‘We have not forgotten’: Yass and district’s war 1914-1918
Cheryl Mongan & Richard Reid, Milltown Research & Publications, 1998.
Written as a model for a study of an Australian community during the Great War, this publication gives a comprehensive account of the Yass district and its people, told through the sources found within the community as well as those held in national institutions. Based on the area covered by the readership of the local newspaper, it includes Boorowa and the various smaller villages from which the men and women of the 1st AIF were recruited. Honor rolls, the records of the Yass Boys’ Comforts Fund, newspapers, and local archival records are supplemented with official records. More than forty honor rolls in the district form the basis for the lists of over 1,500 men and women who enlisted as well as those for fell in the service of their country. With the 90th anniversary of the WWI Armistice in 2008, this book is especially relevant.
