As part of the 100-year anniversary of Armistice Day commemorated on 11 November 2018, the Rotary Club of Kew initiated the Kew Remembers Project to create a lasting and accessible tribute to those servicemen and women who, having seen active service during World War 1, are listed on the Kew Cenotaph. This project recognises the contribution these, and by extension other servicemen and women have made to the Australian community over the preceding 100 years in fostering a just and secure peace within and beyond our borders; and the prominence of the Kew War Memorial and Cenotaph in the local community and the importance of maintaining its relevance for future generations. The Kew Remembers Project owes its existence to the years of research undertaken by local amateur historian Mr Bill Pritchard in documenting the service records and other relevant details on men and women in the City of Boroondara who enlisted to serve in World War 1. The Rotary Club of Kew attained funding for the project through the Commonwealth Government’s Armistice Centenary Grants Program.
