WWI memorabilia wanted in Maitland

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Military buffs and history enthusiasts in Maitland are being enlisted to help with a giant project to commemorate the 100th year since the nightmare Battle of Passchendaele was fought in World War I.
Foremost among the ­soldiers who took part in the horrific fighting were the men of the 34th Battalion – known as Maitland’s Own.
The commemoration will take place at Maitland Regional Art Gallery in October, 2017.
