SIG - Enrolled Pensioner Guards

Description

This group was established in February 2000, as a Special Interest Group of WAGS to recognise and research the men who formed this military unit, and their families. The Enrolled Pensioner Force consisted of soldiers, who came to the colony of Western Australia between 1850 and 1880, most coming during the years of Transportation as Guards on the convict ships. They were soldiers who had been discharged from Military Service, and who on discharge from the army, were awarded pensions.

There is much to be learned and written about the role of these men and their families in the early days of Western Australia. Where might Western Australia have been without their contribution?

This meeting incorporates the Group's Annual General Meeting.
