Hi Everyone,

I am a volunteer for the Virtual War Memorial Australia website and am currently creating pages for all Honour Boards and War Memorials including Stained Glass window memorials.

The VWMA website is unique in that we associate profiles for each soldier which can be updated by the public via moderation. Photographs of soldiers and nurses are attached to the profile where they have been found.
Biographies are also included.

Assistance with digital photographs (full photograph and close up's so it is readable) is needed.

Am particularly seeking photographs of the Old Fairbridgians Association Honour Roll in the Old Fairbridgians Assocation Clubhouse.

Should you know of any memorials in churches/schools/masonic lodges/companies/banks etc I would be appreciative of photographs so that they may be included.

Let's preserve the ANZAC spirit for all to remember.

Thanking you in anticipation,
Kind regards,
Faithe Jones

Tracey Harwood this is the place I was talking about
It's great to see Fairbridge going from strength to strength and
carrying on the good work started so long ago. I spent eight months there with my two older brothers and apart from being so far away from the rest of the family it was a wonderful experience for a young boy. We learnt to run on gravel in bare feet, how to play football (no soccer), how to pick up bobtails without being bitten,what a sergeant ant was and most importantly how to swim.
Our daughter was married here on Friday. Beautiful setting. Memories to be cherished ❤️ Photos of the chapel set up for the wedding

THANK YOU 🌻 Fairbridge for supporting our local community. Your generous contribution to The St Joseph’s Primary School Country Fair 🍎 helped us raise over $15 000 for our school.
It will be put to good use to enhance the play and educational facilities for our students. Thank you for being an important part of our fundraising event.

Adventurous Women would like to say a big THANKS to Scott and Alexis for providing such a safe environment for our ladies to 'have a go' at some pretty awesome adventures on Saturday :)
My first sight of Fairbridge was when I arrived in Perth in 1970 as an immigrant mother with my two small sons, aged 4 and 6 years old. In those days I knew it as the Kingsley Fairbridge Society and it had been arranged before I left England for my two little boys to stay there whilst I went to the Noalimba Migrant Hostel in Perth.
It broke my heart to leave them there but it was only going to be for a short time, until I got a job and my own flat where I could bring my children back to live with me. I visited them every weekend, coming by train from Perth, and then after six weeks I was able to tell them that I had got everything ready for them and they were coming home with me...!
I was lucky....I got a job quickly and within a couple of weeks I moved into a furnished one bedroom flat in Mt Lawley.....all I needed to buy was a set of bunk beds for the boys and then I made my last trip to Pinjarra and brought them home to live with me. What a happy day that was for all three of us....! I had my little family together again under the same roof and we've been a tight-knit family ever since.
They grew up into lovely young men who've never caused me a day of trouble. Both have never been unemployed and are now married with their own families, one even has a grandson now too...! Fairbridge was a stepping stone for me to give my children a new life and I was grateful for that....!

'You can't sleep at night': Pinjarra central location for upcoming holocaust film

Fairbridge Village was recently used for the filming of Fading Numbers, a movie based on the events of the holocaust. The heritage listed cottages were ideal due to the historically accurate colours, and replicated the wall and floor conditions of the timeline. Actors and crew members came from all across WA with several from the Peel region.
