off to war

Former Fremantle Councillor John Dowson has published another historic photo book Off to War about ANZAC and Western Australia’s and Fremantle’s involvement in WW I (1914-1918)

The book was launched at the Army Museum by Premier Colin Barnett last night and is available in bookshops now.

Today John will be at B Shed on Victoria Quay from 10 am to 2 pm and sign the books, so while supporting the Blackboy Hill train journey and the march through Fremantle pop in at B Shed and purchase a book.

    Congratulations John – a wonderful book! Another fantastic book launched at the Army Museum last Sunday, co-authored by Deborah Gare and Madison Lloyd-Jones from Notre Dame University is ‘When War Came To Fremantle – 1988 to 1945. Published by Fremantle Press it contains a collection of wonderful photographs and history – sure to bring back so many memories for so many families. .

    It was a nice evening the Army museum car park was full they had 2 events on that evening.
    Johns intro to his book was very informative, I learnt quite a few things on history in his brief talk.
    And a lovely book too. A couple of good chrissy presents for people I know who will love it.
