Lest We Forget

In the lead up to ANZAC Day this year, the ACT Heritage Library has been publishing some of the stories of people on the ACT Memorial.

One in particular resonated with me as a knitter. It records some of the story of the Snowy River Route march and quotes the recruitment march's organiser, Captain FR Webb

"What can I say of the noble women of Monaro? They along the route were ever fountains of energy, amongst whose refreshing showers were crystallised the golden heart of the women of Monaro, and the click of whose knitting needles along the route was an everlasting lullaby."

we will remember them

It's amazing and wonderful how knitting finds it's way into the pages of history.
