WORLD WAR ONE 1914-1918

More than 700 Hawkesbury Agricultural College (HAC) staff and students enlisted and served in the First World War. They served in the infantry, navy, air corps, camel corps, light horse, artillery, veterinary corps, light horse field ambulance, and many other units. Their experiences were many and varied and a significant portion of these men paid the ultimate price. The bond amongst HAC men was so strong that a large group gathered just months before embarking for Gallipoli, at the Eden Palace Hotel Cairo, on 20 February 1915 for a reunion dinner.

These pages are a tribute to the HAC men who died during the course of World War One. Additional entries will be uploaded at appropriate intervals close to the centenary of each man’s death.
