About the Enrolled Pensioner Guards Group

EPG Barracks

EPG LogoThis group was established in February 2000,  as a Special Interest Group of FasmilyHistoryWA (FHWA), 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 arriving 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.
