    It's a rate of casualties and loss of life that simply wouldn't be tolerated today.
    Mate, You will find memorials in the majority of the small country towns in NSW. There's one in Rugby. It's a bush town with a population of 70 some odd people on an unpaved road part way between Young and Crookwell. The whole town is just a a few houses, a school,the memorial and not much more.

    Those memorials really drive the point home don't they Paul, every loss was a tragedy, but the loss of of so many young lives from small isolated farming communities must have been almost unbearable for the families left behind.

    True indeed. In some of the small bush towns, every lad who joined up back then was known to every one in the town. In fact, in most cases, since most of the families in those towns were original settlers, they related in some small way (distant cousins, etc.) to almost everyone else in the town.
