Digging around the dirt at Goulburn's Kenmore hospital last Friday will ensure that the city's sacrifice in the Great War will be immotalised.

 

Civic and school leaders led by the state minister for Veteran  Affairs, David Elliott removed a soil sample from Kenmore's war memorial and this will be placed in the soon to be completed Anzac structure in Sydney's Hyde Park.

 

The soil sample will be one of 1600 from throughout the state to be prominently displayed in Sydney.

 

They represent places where young men enlisted to serve their country.
