So many of our families arrived as convicts; a few scoundrels to be sure but many were simply victims of circumstances and, ovewhelmingly, they adapted to their new life, they worked hard to create a future for their families and they helped create our wonderful island state.  And so many more selflessly fought and some made the ultimate sacrifice, , protecting their families and their future. 

Convicts

and those who served in the:

Boer War

Second World War

Korean War

Vietnam War

We salute them all.

First World War
