This book commemorates the brave women and men who
served in the Australian Defence Forces during World War II,
and who now rest in peace or are memorialised at the Dunkeld
Cemetery. Among those listed are members of the Royal
Australian Navy (RAN), the Australian Army, the Royal Australian
Air Force (RAAF), the Volunteer Defence Corps (VDC), the
Australian Women’s Army Service (AWAS), and the Australian
Women’s Land Army. Not all of them saw active service overseas
and of those who did, many became Prisoners of War, however
without exception all of them put their lives on hold to willingly
give their time to defend our shores and those of our allies in
theatres of war from Europe to Darwin and throughout the Pacific.
