Chapman Valley History


This project consumed a huge amount of work, research and dedication. Implementation would not have been possible if it were not for the support of many individuals and organisations. We express our gratitude toward our families, the families of the fallen soldiers and colleagues for their kind co-operation and encouragement which helped us in the completion of this project.

A special thanks must go to our researchers Dr John Sharpham and Jenny MacKay for the commitment to see this project through to the outstanding tribute that is now a major exhibit at the Chapman Valley Museum.
