Searching for local stories

We did this work last year for the 100th Anniversary of WW1.  It has just been published on the Walking With An Anzac site, so it's nice to see it again and re-read our work and remember the brave young men and their stories.

This is just a screenshot of the article about us published on the 'Walking with an ANZAC' site, so the writing is tiny.  Click on the picture for the link to the article about our work : )

  4. Thank You everybody, It was really fun really fun writing about it because we had to do a LOT of research for the soldiers as mine is "Victor Francis Nielson". I had to research where he lived, when he was born, when he died and when he left for the war, and that's just most of the stuff off the top of my head.

  5. Namaste ( Hindi) Amy,

    The blog post told me about what the writing was about. Can I just suggest, if you could make the writing a bit bigger. By the way it looks interesting and looks great. How did you plan it? It would be phenomenal to see the planning. It would be amazing if you could put it a link in for the google site you made and maybe you could add some colour to make it look more interesting. Here’s a link to a website which has a few facts about WWI (https://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=video&cd=3&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiB2t-I57fOAhUClZQKHQH2AEkQuAIIJzAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.britannica.com%2Fevent%2FWorld-War-I&usg=AFQjCNG73knmP6yygcKJd2n_XjzhylY1tw&bvm=bv.129389765,d.dGo). You're going to have to copy and paste it, in the omnibox . We’ve done WWI art too. If you want to take a look at it it is on our blog : http://hpsmaccarthymorrogh.blogspot.co.nz/. Keep up the great work.

    Kind Regards,
