Pictured: Ross Jackson, local military author with Michael Page, Gippsland Veterans Welfare Centre presented Federal Member for Gippsland, Darren Chester with a copy of Ross’s book Empty Tomb – The story of the Sale and District Cenotaph 1924-1949. 

The people of Sale and district funded and erected the Fallen Soldier’s Memorial which was unveiled in June 1924 by Brigadier-General Forsyth C.M.G. to remember those who died during World War One, adding the fallen from World War Two at a later date.

Mr Jackson’s book explores the Cenotaph’s history during these years and provides biographical description of the 91 names of those from Sale and surrounding districts who served their country but never returned home.
