Narooma Talks History July 31st

The dynamic South Coast History Society celebrates the release of each new issue of its free history

magazine, ‘Recollections’, with a ‘Talking History’ morning tea in one of the libraries on the South Coast. The August 2018 issue of ‘Recollections’ will be officially launched at 10.30am on Tuesday 31 st July at Narooma Library. And two particularly interesting locals will be attending to ‘talk history’. One is Harry Bate from Tilba who has recently been involved with the remarkable restoration of the historic Corunna Cemetery, just south of Narooma. “It’s particularly appropriate that he will be participating because the August issue of ‘Recollections’ includes an article on the Corunna cemetery,” South Coast History Society President Peter Lacey said. The other speaker will be Dr Philip Creagh from Narooma. He has just completed a mammoth book on a cohort of soldiers from around NSW who were killed in World War I. ‘Talking History’ is a free event. However, Narooma Library asks that anyone planning to attend let them know in advance on 4476 1164 so adequate seating and morning tea will be available. The August issue of ‘Recollections’ will be available from July 31 st from all branches of the Eurobodalla and Bega Valley Shire libraries. In Narooma it will also be available from Narooma New & Used, Montague Vets and the Narooma Visitor Centre. Free copies are also available in PDF format by simply emailing ‘Send Recollections’ to

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
