To celebrate Heritage Week, Helensburgh & District Historical Society will be having an Open Day at our small museum and resource centre, the Old Mine Surgery, 78 Parkes Street, Helensburgh, on Sunday 24 April, 10 am to 3 pm.
As a further remembrance of World War I, a 100 years re-enactment of the south coast recruiting Waratah March was held on Saturday 12 December 2015. At the conclusion of the march a memorial ceremony was held at the Helensburgh War Memorial in Charles Harper Park. The Helensburgh & District Historical Society presented a display relating to Helensburgh men and WWI. We also provided a LEAFLET with information on the men who volunteered at Stawell Park and Helensburgh on 14 December 1915.
