Event description

Description

For this workshop, Paul will invite one or more participants to provide the name and service number of a World War I digger whom they would like to research.

Paul will go through the various online and offline sources that will help to piece together the digger’s military service, and provide interpretation and context.

These records might include the digger’s service record, unit war diary, Red Cross files, and repatriation files. Paul will also include official histories, maps, and photographs.

Note.

If you wish to provide the name and details of a WWI digger for Paul's presentation, an ideal person would be one who was killed or wounded in battle, thus we would know where that digger was at a certain time. However, you are also welcome to bring details of diggers who were not killed or wounded.
Preferably, the digger would be one whose service record has not already been researched.
