Reflections / Capturing Veterans’ Stories is a handy booklet available through this site, as well as being housed at the Dumbleyung Library at the CRC. It gives an insight into how best to undertake oral history interviews with veterans.
Recently Cuballing launched a book covering stories within their shire. Riders from the Dryandra Pony Club attended the Great War Histories of the Shire of Cuballing book launch service on February 16th in slouch hats and khaki. Dumbleyung local Danee Bairstow was one of those who attended, on her horse Rocky.
Virtual reality technology is another resource with stunning 360-degree drone footage which brings the Australian Remembrance Trail to life in the Anzac 360 App. Eight key sites and battles from the First World War are explained through interactive educational videos, highlighting the challenges our troops faced on the Western Front some 100 years ago. Search Anzac 360 for more information.
The local Anzac Day service will start at 11.30am at the Dumbleyung War Memorial. Veterans and people wishing to march are to form up outside the CRC (old post office) at 11.20am. The community is welcome to attend a light lunch at the Dumbleyung District Club after the service. For more information contact Gough Hughes on 0427 637 214.
