Today, Sunday 15th August 2021, the Kingsgrove RSL Sub Branch would have normally commemorated the 76th Anniversary of VP Day but unfortunately due to the current Covid – 19 restrictions they were not able to commemorate in their normal manner of a service & luncheon however wreaths were placed on both of the Club’s Memorial.
Kingsgrove RSL Club was honoured to have given funding to St Clare’s College students to create The Lost Diggers of Fromelles Documentary, in collaboration with Patrick Lindsay, an Australia’s best-selling non-fiction author and TV broadcaster.
Giving a voice to the families who lost so much, the documentary features relatives of the missing diggers who reflect on the enormous loss caused to their families by the death of their loved ones in the fields of Fromelles. Drone technology is used to outline the immense obstacles our soldiers faced as they were sent across the fields to attack the German trenches.
Congratulations to St Clare’s College students & Patrick Lindsay on the release of The Lost Diggers of Fromelles and your tremendous efforts.
