Remembering Toogong's fallen war heroes While most major towns around the central west have prominent cenotaphs and war memorials, countless discount pandora bracelets smaller tributes are also dotted around the region.
The small locality of Toogong, near Cudal is no exception. "There are a couple more names that should have been on there; there were two [people from the one family] killed in the First World War, but there's only one name [on the memorial]." The church was built in the 1870s, while the memorial was dedicated in 1924. It was proposed and funded by the Irvine brothers of Lowrie, who wanted to honour those from within 10 kilometres of Toogong who fought in WWI. Marion's passion for the locality's military history was ignited in 1999 when then Reverend at St Albans, Jeanette McHugh instigated the locality's Anzac Day dawn service. Rev. McHugh lay down a challenge to the community, for the first names of all those recognised on the memorial to be uncovered. Marion took up the task and became fascinated by the stories she uncovered. "It opened a big Pandora's box," official pandora charms website she says. "We were able to chase down nearly everyone; there're only two names on the memorial I haven't pandora bracelets cheap online found the Christian names for. "I didn't realise the amount of people from this small area [who went to war]." What followed was Marion penning a book in 2006 based on her research titled 'Servicemen and women from Cudal and district including Cargo and Toogong'. "[The war's impact] was just massive," says Marion. "There were so many killed, [or] they came back injured or mentally disturbed. "They were never the same." The dawn service on Anzac Day 2015 at Toogong will undoubtedly share in the same essence of solemnity and respect which is set to thread its way through towns and villages across the nation. Marion says Anzac Day is always special. "It is just unreal. It's dark when you first arrive, and you see headlights coming from everywhere. They come up this hill, and everyone's quiet. [Bagpipes] start playing, and there's usually a pandora sale items kookaburra or two. "It's just so important [young people particularly come]. They're not going to forget.
"We've just got to not ever forget that Australia was endangered, even though in the First World War we were fighting for Britain. Really when you think about it, things could have gone quite wrong.".
