Honouring the 849: Projection Project
Fremantle's Fallen, 1914-1918
Eight hundred and forty-nine is the number of servicemen who lived in the greater Fremantle area, embarked in Fremantle on the transport ships that would take them to far away fields, and they are the ones that never returned. These fallen soldiers and sailors of World War One will be honoured in a number of ways including the laying of 849 crosses by local school students on Remembrance Day 2014 and the unveiling of 12 bronze plaques bearing their names, permanently affixed to the Fremantle War Memorial during the Dawn Service, ANZAC Day 2015.
From 7pm - 10pm on Saturday 8 November and Sunday 9 November, thanks to the visual artistry of Frankensound and the City of Fremantle, the names of these men will be projected onto the Fremantle Town Hall, alongside some imagery of these soldiers and sailors.
Join us in Kings Square, in front of Fremantle Town Hall to take in this sight and honour these men and their ultimate sacrifice.
This event has been kindly supported and funded by the Australian Government's ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program.
