The Pilbara Regiment will hold the 10th annual Whim Creek Memorial Service this weekend to commemorate the five Lockyer brothers who left the Pilbara to enlist in the 2nd AIF at the height of World War II.

The brothers served in the army and air force during the war.

Sadly, Eric and Arnold Lockyer paid the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty, never to return to the Pilbara.

The Whim Creek Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, April 9 in front of the Lockyer brothers’ memorial in the carpark at the Whim Creek Hotel.

All are welcome to attend the 9.30am service.
