EXHIBITION AND WAR COMFORTS FUND

An exhibition of items illustrating the history of the Edgar Families was a feature of an evening arranged on 27 November last by the War Comforts Committee. There was a record attendance of members and their friends and, as a result about ten pounds was raised for the Society’s Comfort fund. Among the exhibits of Edgar interest, by courtesy of the Genealogical Society of Victoria displayed in that Society’s Library, were photographs of Wedderlie, Keithock, Peffermyl, Pine Hills homestead and Edgar monuments in New Jersy, USA. A collection of letters relating to the Keithock Edgars attachment to the Royal Stuart Cause were also on view and there were several books containing Edgar references. Members also saw part of the Society’s record collections, pedigree and press-cutting books, etc.

 

The War Comforts Committee will meet this month to arrange for the dispatch of further parcels to our menfolk serving overseas. Donations may still be made to assist the Committee in its work.
