Campbelltown RSL’s Sub Branch is hosting the memorial service from noon, honouring the hundredth anniversary of the Australian Naval and Military Expedition Force’s (AN&MEF) departure to German-occupied New Guinea during WWI.

Four members of the AN&MEF are known to have hailed from the local area— Private Basil Williamson of Campbelltown and Colour-Sergeant Archie Graham, Private Arthur Gates and sailor Jack Symonds of Ingleburn.

The task force managed to complete their mission speedily, capturing the German colony of Rabaul in only two days, enjoying a victory parade in the town square on September 13.

Mawson Park’s memorial service will see wreaths laid by two direct descendants of AN&MEF war heroes.

For more information on the memorial service contact Campelltown RSL Sub Branch Senior Vice President Warren Browning on 4646 8340.
