As 2015 marks 100 years since the Gallipoli landing, a great deal of attention is being given to remembering the service of Australia's men and women during The Great War 1914-1918.
Local historian Dr Neville Green AM, with Anne Barwood and Lynne Mannolini have written "Not Just A Name", a new book that records the military service of more than 1,000 men and women from the local area, including Mosman Park (once known as Cottesloe Beach and Buckland Hill) and Cottesloe and Peppermint Grove. The book was part-funded by a grant received from the Town of Mosman Park's Community Chest grant scheme - details of the Town's grant funding scheme are available here
The book is a very comprehensive record of the war service from our local area, including detailed service records and photographs, as well as memorial records and family histories. Many of those remembered in the book are also honoured by trees planted along Memorial Drive in Mosman Park and at the Town's war memorials.
The publication of this book is part of a series of commemorative events throughout the Town, including the performance of "Minefields and Miniskirts" by the Harbour Theatre Company at Memorial Hall, beginning Wednesday 15 April 2015. Details of the performance are available here
The Town of Mosman Park will host a special Gunfire Breakfast followed by an official ANZAC Day Commemorative Service on Saturday 25 April 2015. Details of the service are available here

The Asian paddle crab is an aggressive non-native crab that could spread devastating disease to prawns, crabs and lobsters.
It can carry a disease that causes poisoning in humans, and could out-compete native crabs like our iconic blue swimmer.
The paddle crab is not currently established in Australia, but has significant potential to do so and to become a major pest.
Recently, an Asian Paddle Crab was caught in Matilda Bay, and it is important to report any instances of these pest species in our local waterways.
If you spot one of these Asian Paddle Crabs, call FishWatch on 1800 815 507 where you can also report:
