Stories for 200 Coo-ees now on website

I have now written individual stories for 200 of the 263 men who were recruited to join the A.I.F. on the 1915 Gilgandra to Sydney Coo-ee March.

This is an ongoing project, which I (hopefully) aim to complete by the end of the Centenary of Anzac period.

Their names are listed on

    You have done an amazing job in capturing all the soldiers of the Cooee March. Congratulations on your effort. How is Brian Bywater and Hitchen House Museum going now days?


  3. Great work Helen, such a range of experiences, it’s great you had done so much to remember them.
