How To Research and Honour Our Returned War Heroes
Veteran and author Ian Burrett believes that returned service people have just as much right to be named on community war memorials as those who died during or as a result of their service.
Hundreds of thousands of returned veterans, primarily from the two World Wars, have never been named on community war memorials. This book explains why, and offers step-by-step guidelines to assist communities to update their memorials. It also provides advice to those wishing to research their service person ancestors, and to school students and other researchers studying our wartime history.
Ian Burret's book may be regarded as a text book for those wanting to give our returned service people, and those who died, the long-overdue recognition they deserve.
