The Great War of 1914-1918 affected all avenues of suburban life. Its impact was profound and didn’t end in November 1918. At the end of the four-year centenary commemorations of the First World War, Dr Helen Doyle will reflect on the local impact of the war in the City of Stonnington (formerly the Cities of Malvern and Prahran).
