Western Australian Genealogical Society Enrolled Pensioner Guard Special Interest Group

The arrival in Western Australia of the Hougoumont, with its cargo of convicts and Pensioner Guards, marked the end of transportation worldwide. The 9 January 2018 will mark the 150th Anniversary of this event and so the WA Genealogical Society and the Royal WA Historical Society will be holding a series of Joint Presentations and Displays of Artefacts and Photographs of the men who came to the Swan River Colony, both in chains and in Uniform, during the convict era.

On Saturday 20 January 2018, WAGS EPG Special Interest Group will commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the occasion. Lorraine Clarke will talk about the Hougoumont and its Warders and Pensioner Guards. After the presentation Ian Barnes will show members through the new website.
