THE Henty and District Historical Society has the funds now available to publish and print a memorial book dedicated to the World War I servicemen of Henty and district. Many of these soldiers may have only been temporary residents of the district but, through their work and commitment, enlisted in Henty, possibly driven by the fervour of the recruitment activities, and have a connection to Henty.
The book will be released later this year but, due to its size, copies will be only available in CD form.
