impressive display of memorabilia has seen hundreds
of local school children view the ANZAC soldier's
equipment used during World War 1.
The display at Turramurra Bowling Club was created
by memorabilia collector and club member, Warwick
Sharpe of Turramurra.
Mr Sharpe said most of the World war 1 items had
been given to him by ex-servicemen and women since
served in the second AIF and over many years through
his association with the returned service clubs I
got to know a lot of returned servicemen and women
and a lot of them were from the First World War," he
"I made it my purpose in life to collect their
belongings after what they had done, why they had
done it and how they recovered from their
students from Turramurra North Public School viewed
the collection this year, which has been at the
Turramurra club almost every year for 20 years.
Mr Sharpe has also arranged displays at Lady
Davidson Hospital which specialised in serving
returned servicemen and has loaned items to the
Normanhurst West Public School also regularly
displays war relics on loan from Warwick Sharpe.
