Altona and Laverton communities flourished in the wake of two world wars. People from Europe flocked into our area to make a new home for their families. War was the catalyst for change and peace was the result as military personnel returned home to Altona and Laverton or made the area their new home.
The Altona-Laverton Historical Society has endeavored to unearth the stories of military persons from our area and celebrate our LOCAL HEROES. From the Boer War to the Afghanistan conflict, we have collected stories of war and of peace – locals who answered the call to defend their country or to tend those wounded. The exhibition will run from April 3rd until the end of June.
Lest We Forget.
