Forever Remembered – Commemorating Hunter War Veterans
Over 102,000 Australian men and women died in all wars that Australia participated in.
There are 68,000 Australians who made the supreme sacrifice and are buried in 78 countries around the world.
Some 34,000 have no known grave and are buried, unidentified, in Belgium and France, lost at sea, and lost in the air over Europe and the Pacific.
Scattered throughout the many cemeteries in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie are many of these veterans. Most are long forgotten and many rest in unmarked graves whose stories are lost in time.
This project is a small way to honour these veterans.
We pay tribute to you.
