WHAT IS A GUILDFORD ANZAC HOME
AND WHAT IS A GUILDFORD ANZAC?
An Anzac home or place of residence in Guildford or South Guildford is the place where a World War 1 soldier or nurse resided prior to embarking for war (1914-18). This may include a home of their childhood or where they boarded for school. It may also include a nominated address of a family member from their attestation papers or a recorded home of their wife or widow up to the end of the war in November 1918.
The Guildford Anzacs lived, worked, studied or worshipped in the town of Guildford. Many of these Anzacs who attended Guildford Grammar School had families and homes outside the town and across the State of Western Australia, however, they all made up the complex fabric of social life in Guildford. All these men and women young and older are the Guildford Anzacs.
