Fremantle Studies Day 2018


Freo Oval

This year’s theme focuses our thoughts on the ‘end of the Great War’.

We have chosen Fremantle Oval as a fitting place to hold the event as the very first returned soldiers were brought to the oval to be feted and cheered by a grateful and relieved Fremantle public.


Dr Leigh Straw : The Suffering Begins: Returned Soldiers, families and the aftermath of World War 1 in Western Australia

Allan Graham: The Fremantle hotel trade during World War One

Baden Pratt: Hell for Leather: North Fremantle Football club and the Great War

Dr Michelle McKeough: Repatriation: A Debt of Gratitude


WHERE: Fremantle Library, Fremantle Oval, 70 Parry Street, Fremantle

WHEN: Sunday 28th October, 2018

TIME: 1 – 5 pm


ADMISSION: $15 members, $20 non-members (join on the day for members’ prices)

Afternoon Tea included. RSVP’s essential: please email the Secretary, by 23 October.
