MORE than 100 guests and residents filled the Mansfield RSL Hall on Saturday evening for the official launch of the Anzac Centenary of World War I display.
President of the Mansfield RSL sub-branch Retired Major Bruce Bingham welcomed all, especially Cathy McGowan (MHR, Indi), Cindy McLeish (MLA, Eildon) and Mansfield Shire mayor Marg Attley.
He outlined the two projects undertaken jointly by the RSL sub-branch and the Mansfield Family History Group which has seen a picture board history of some 26 local men and women who went off to war.
Mr Bingham praised the coordination of these projects, not only between the RSL and family history group but with the local schools and others.
RSL project coordinator and historian Graham Godber was asked to outline the display project to all.
“This has been a joint undertaking by Mansfield RSL and the Mansfield Family History Group which has pre-occupied us both (he and Sheena Daykin) for many, many months,” Mr Godber said.
