Thank you

Our generous supporters have helped to build a memorial to commemorate the great sacrifices of soldiers such as Private Reginald Francis Hawkins, 42nd Battalion, from Jericho Queensland picture left. Private Hawkins enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force in WW1 at the age of 23 in 1915. He embarked for overseas on 5 June 1916 aboard HMAT Borda. He was hit by a shell in the left leg and right side of the head and captured by the Germans at Armentieres, France, on 14 February 1917. Hawkins became a POW in various camps in Germany until he was repatriated to England on 10 January 1919 and arrived back in Australia on 12 May 1919. (Source: Australian War Memorial)
