Sue, thanks for the email.

I make the following points-
1. I will forward a photo of the Honour Board as an attachment with the
common email in
the next few days.
2. I am not sure how many of the WWII servicemen and women listed on
the Honour
Board are still alive but in addition to Tom Lawless, the three Fox
sisters are alive.
3. I wish to view the early photos of the Hazelwood South Hall and may
wish to obtain
digital copies.
4. The expression- They fought for Hazelwood- is incorrect. None of
people listed on the
Honour Board enlisted at Hazelwood, some enlisted after they left
the Hazelwood
district and a few never lived at Hazelwood although they attended
the Hazelwood South State School.
5. I am the person who has taken photos of this Honour Board and
others. It is for my
own project relating to the commemorations of servicemen and women
of any era from Hazelwood (including Churchill). I am seeking to
identify men and women who have
lived in Hazelwood (as defined) for some part of their lives and
have served full-time in the Australian, colonial or allied forces. Many
of the veterans, for different reasons
are not listed on any Honour Board.
6. I am opposed to the suggestion that the names on this Honour Board
be duplicated for another purpose as the Board contains inaccuracies
and is not complete.

More details will follow when I have completed and forwarded the email.
