Howard Jones was asked by the City of Albury RSL Sub-Branch to write March of the Veterans, which is the first publication to provide such a comprehensive list of all the names of servicemen and women from the area.

It was the 33rd book written by Jones, who was a fitting author after having written about defence matters during his 32 years at The Border Mail.

The book tells the story of the City of Albury RSL Sub-Branch and Jones said he wanted it to focus on the people.

“I found about six names from World War I who are not listed at the war memorial plaques, I went to a lot of trouble to find the missing names, which I have included in the honour roll in the book,” Jones said.

“There were some amazing people to write about, such as Ernie Fugger, born in 1892.

“He survived the Battle of Lone Pine at Gallipoli only to be gassed at Ypres, but he earned a military medal for bravery.”

About 25 people turned out to meet Victoria Cross recipient Keith Payne, who launched the book.

He said with Remebrance Day just around the corner, it was important this history was not forgotten.

“It is most important that history is recorded and the sacrifice they made for the nation that came from this district I think is commendable,” Mr Payne said.

“We say we will remember them, and we will.”

The book can be bought for $10 from Anzac House in Wilson Street.
