From 1916, in the middle of Work War One, Addison Road Community Centre in Marrickville, Sydney was a ‘place of enlistment’ for the Australian Imperial Forces. We know of 51 men who took oaths here to ‘serve our Sovereign Lord the King’ and fight overseas. These are the war-time stories of ten of them, two of whom never returned.
