The Book Launch of ‘Saluting the Service of Wentworth’s People’ has been a roaring success with a large attendance in the Wentworth Shire Library.
Speaking on behalf of the Wentworth Historical Society, Tony Bruce-Mullins spoke of the lengthy journey of two and a half years to the launch of the publication today (Wednesday 28 June).
David McMillan, Secretary of the Wentworth and District RSL, officially launched the book with guests enjoying an assortment of sandwiches and sweets afterwards, supplied by Clarkes Newsagency.
The book, encouraged by the late Rosemary Bruce-Mullins, records and acknowledges the service and lives of military personnel from the Wentworth NSW region. The book covers the service of personnel for all relevant conflicts from the Boer War through to Vietnam and currently serving personnel. Made possible by the Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs ‘Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program’ and the extensive efforts of Wentworth Historical Society, the book will be a truly valuable resource to researchers and military historians for years to come.
Hard cover books are available to purchase for $50 or can be posted Australia wide for $25. An eBook will also available for $30. Contact the Wentworth Shire Library on (03) 5027 5060 for further information.
