Monthly Meeting, February 5th 2016

8:00 pm at The Museum5th Div at Fromelles

Speaker: Lambis Englezos

Topic: ‘Finding the missing soldiers from Fromelles’.

On the 19th July 1916 the 5th Australian Division was involved in a terrible battle near the French village of Fromelles. Almost 2,000 men died. Australian amateur historian, Lambis Englezos, was shocked by the futility of this action and the huge number of casualities. He realised that the list of the missing and the number of unidentified soldiers in nearby cemeteries did not match up.

Lambis met some of the survivors of Fromelles – the so called ‘19th July men’ and in 2002 visited the site.

Where were the missing men from this battle ?

Hear Lambis describe his long and determined journey to discover the answers despite much discouragement from authorities.

Parks Victoria is currently reviewing the Point Nepean National Park Master Plan. An important element of this review is community and stakeholder consultation.
A draft master plan, which involved extensive community and stakeholder consultation, was prepared and exhibited in 2010 (see below). It was prepared within the planning and management context provided by the Point Nepean National Park and Point Nepean Quarantine Station Management Plan 2009.
