Sincere gratitude is expressed by the Inglewood and District Historical Society members to Mrs Heather
Ford (nee Lucas) for the multitude of hours of research, both in Australia and during her visits to the
Western battle fields over many years.

Congratulations for a job well done.

Appreciation is heartily extended to four funding sources, firstly the Inglewood and District Community Enterprises Limited, the Shire of Loddon, the State Government of Victoria and lastly the Inglewood and District Historical Society.
Many hours of typing and secretarial work has been happily done by Ms Kim Hanlon and her Inglewood Community Neighbourhood House personal, many thanks.

The Inglewood and District Historical Society members ably led by Mr Howard Rochester have worked tirelessly.
To the countless lenders of photographs we have scanned, too many to name, but in particular the Inglewood and Bridgewater R.S.L. Museum curator, and the Medcalf and Rochester families. Thank you all so much.




Come and explore Inglewood in the Loddon Mallee.  Just 50km NW or Bendigo.
