HELP FIND THE LOST NAMES

2019 marks 100 years since construction began on the Great Ocean Road and we are on the hunt to find the lost names of the 2400 ex-servicemen and 600 civilians who built what is today the largest War Memorial in the world. If you have a contribution to this story or know the name of a returned serviceman who worked on the road, please email the Lorne Historical Society at info@lornehistoricalsociety.com.au or via their website lornehistoricalsociety.org.au/contact
