This website was made by Byron Panos, in year nine at Great Lakes College, in December 2018.

I hope you enjoy viewing this website, as I enjoyed making it. It was intriguing to explore the role of women in the World Wars.

It helped me to understand what my relatives experienced. My great-grandfather on my mother’s side fought in the navy, for Australia, on the HMAS Manoora. His wife, my great-grandmother, was in the Australian Women’s Land Army, based at Batlow.

On my father’s side, my great grandfather fought for Greece, in the battle of Northern Greece in WWII. My great-great grandfather fought for Greece in WWI, at Gallipoli.
