Men from Snowy River Route March Honour Roll Print Page
The delegates were generally favourable to Goulburn being the final stage for the route march. The Hon. A. Chapman said that he was in favour of the proposal, as he thought the result from a recruiting view would be better than if they were to be marched to Sydney. The motion was passed that Goulburn be the depot for the terminus. The distance will be about 225 miles, and it is anticipated that the men will arrive in the camp about the 29th of January, 1916. About 25 recruits are already waiting for the march.
