BugleThe initial meeting of the WAGS Military Special Interest Group was held on Saturday 17 October 2015, where it was agreed that there was sufficient interest amongst WAGS members to form a specific SIG to provide assistance and a place for those with military interests to be heard.

The primary aim of the group is to enhance the knowledge of members and other interested parties in the research of all things military, in particular from a genealogy or family history perspective.

We meet every three months, usually on the third Saturday of February, May, August and November, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm, at WAGS Unit 4/48 May Street, Bayswater.  

We are a self-help group, aiming to improve our general knowledge about things military and to help members navigate the minefield of military research. We will also spend time looking at successes, problems and queries.

All WAGS members are welcome to come along to our meetings and join our mailing list. A gold coin donation at the meeting helps to build up funds to purchase additional resources for the library or our projects. Maybe we'll see you at one of our meetings soon.
