Essendon & Flemington

Essendon Rifles 58th Bn 1913 S1.jpgThe Empire Called and I Answered – the Volunteers of Essendon and Flemington

The database and website, which went online in 2009, has been created by local amateur historian Lenore Frost to capture as much information as possible on the hundreds of soldiers that enlisted in the Essendon area of Melbourne. Amongst this group are over 150 men that would be assigned to the 22nd Battalion. Lenore’s research has focused on local records not readily available to people that do not live locally for example from Honour Rolls, church records, local history publications etc to recreate the war-time community of that time. Included within the project are photograph collections and albums from personal collections of the soldiers from the area.
