Aboriginal ANZAC WWI Diggers from the Blue Mountains and Windsor areas
A vibrant and interesting exhibition is running in Springwood Library on Aboriginal ANZAC WWI diggers from the Blue Mountains and Windsor areas.
A joint project between the Mountains Outreach Community Service, BM People for Reconciliation and ANTaR, the exhibition focuses on the WWI service of the descendants of Maria (daughter of Darug elder, Yarramundi) and Robert Lock (convict). The project received funding from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program.
The exhibition consists of photographs and short biographies of 11 members of the wider Lock(e) family. Come and learn more about this prominent Blue Mountains family.
Can you can solve the mystery of the identity of the soldier turning heads on Katoomba Street, Katoomba in one of the photographs?
The exhibition is on at Springwood Library from 23rd November to 2nd December before moving to Hawkesbury Library, Windsor.
