The Forty-Eight


Keith’s forgotten sons, the town’s first soldiers …

To foreign fields and deserts parched
They farewelled Keith and off they marched,
And whether killed, or grew to old
Herein, at last, their stories told.

Even before the War, some of Keith’s Forty-Eight went into battle on a weekly basis, on the football field. Fit, athletic and competitive, the young men of Keith, South Australia and surrounding areas who loved the combat of the football field would soon be volunteering to serve in the First World War. But who were these men, and what were their stories?
