World War Two

War Memorial  Macquarie Road, Springwood
Fortunately, the names of local men who enlisted for World War One are listed on the Honor Board located in Springwood Civic Centre & their service and history perpetuated in Remembrance Springwood District Honor Roll 1914-1919. Local volunteers for World War Two were not so lucky; their names remain largely unrecorded except in service records and military papers.
The National Archives of Australia took over the work of digitalising service records from the Australian War Memorial Canberra and are making progress on the latter records to make them available to the wider public.  Although all records are not yet digitalised the following is a list of men and women who were born, or enlisted, in Springwood.
