The Enrolled Pensioner Guard (EPG) Special Interest Group of FamilyHistoryWA wish to thank  those  who participated in the long journey (over ten years) in developing and researching the men profiled in  the ‘Ships Project’. The EPG Special Interest Group also express their appreciation to the authors of all cited reference material for their dedicated work in moving the knowledge and understanding of the Western Australian EPF forward.

That assistance often meant long hours delving into indecipherable records and chasing people through the ages and countries they served in. The dedication and participation of cited authors and researchers is appreciated, for without them, the website would not have been possible.

Future contributions of information (once checked) from descendants of EPGs or other interested parties will be acknowledged as resources that enhance this website.

Special thanks go to the ‘Admiral’, Margaret Hickey, who shepherded,  cajoled, bribed and threatened many; and also to the fantastic ship’s ‘Captains’:
