Supreme Court

The War Memorial Project

​A project was conceived at the Supreme Court in early 2017 to develop content on this website that records and celebrates the contributions made by Members of the Legal Profession of New South Wales in the First World War 1914-1918.

The content will be updated on an on-going basis as the stories and related materials (photos, audio files) are finalised. It is hoped that the materials will be of interest to all, particularly in the lead up to the centenary of the end of the War on 11 November 2018.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions.
