Event Details

In August 1914 Australia joined Great Britain in declaring war with Germany. What was our local community like back then? What was the reaction to war? How did the Great War affect local people? Join panellists; Ross McMullin, widely published historian and biographer of Pompey Elliott; Lenore Frost, Life Member of Essendon Historical Society and local history author; and library community heritage staff as they discuss these questions. The event will commence with a performance by an ensemble from Moonee Valley Brass playing some popular songs of the era.
