Hill End & Tambaroora’s contribution to World War One

Hill End, like so many other small country towns, played its part in the First World War, with many of its young men and women enlisting in the services.

As the Centenary of Anzac Day drew closer a decision was made to honour these soldiers and nurses who spent their formative years in the village or surrounding district. Starting with the WW1 Honor Roll in the Public School, researcher Helen Wood undertook the task of researching these WW1 soldiers. This list was expanded to include all those who were born, went to school or whose families were significant in the area.

To honour their memory, the Hill End & Tambaroora Gathering Group published “Golden Diggers” which was launched in Hill End on Anzac Day 2015. These 174 servicemen and women have now been commemorated on the two bronze plaques that were affixed to the revamped War Memorial as part of the Centenary commemorations.

Copies of “Golden Diggers” can be purchased from our bookshop. The book includes biographical & military information about each serviceman and woman as well as a snapshot of life in Hill End during the war years.
