This research project is dedicated to the memory of the  206  “original”  men who formed the 1st Field Company Engineers – Australian Imperial Force 1914 -1918 and in addition the  23 “original” men of the 1st FCE Reinforcements.

It will be an ongoing commemoration of these men whose memory has been largely overlooked for 100 years…… but no longer.

It is the ambition of this site to compile as much information relating to the original men of 1st FCE- AIF and making it available as a single reference source – more like an …. “Information Centre” and gateway for other like minded researchers, historians and connected families.

It is always going to be a work in progress, a project which was originally planned and deserving of publication, but has found this a more suitable format that can be updated, improved , corrected and more accessible .

It is hoped that this site will bring to life the men of the company, no longer just names and regimental numbers, but men with faces, families and great stories, who should always be remembered by Australians forever more .

It is hoped that families, relatives and friends will make new discoveries about these men and enjoy the material presented and also use this as a link to enjoy the research work of others who have lived with the history of their ancestors and have also made it possible to discover even more about the original men of the 1st Field Company Engineers – AIF.

To discover more about the original men of the 1st Field Company Engineers please read the stories that I have included in this project and click on the members from the list titled “The Men” below and follow their life story. ( If the name isn’t highlighted , dont panic,  I havn’t had time to upload all the details, but it is all coming soon or you can email me in the meantime if need be.)

All contributions and corrections are invited and will be greatly appreciated and acknowledged, so please don’t hesitate to make contact….Thank you.
