    I have researched the World War One soldiers on this Memorial – their service numbers and connection to Narre Warren and surrounds, amongst other information, can be found at
    http://caseycardinia1914-1918.blogspot.com.au/2014/12/narre-warren-war-memorial.html There are still some that I can’t identify, so if you have any information about them I would love to hear from you.
