Tour of Newcastle War Cemetery
Sunday 14 August 2022

A reminder to members about the FREE tour of our local Commonwealth War Cemetery at Maitland Road, Sandgate. Renowned local historian Ed Tonks, OAM has volunteered to lead the tour to thank the Society for assistance he has received in the past.
You’ll hear stories of Army, Navy, Marine and Royal Marine servicemen (officers and enlisted) who are buried in the cemetery. There may be some surprises in finding out just how important our local area was in the events of World War II, as well.
