Anzac Display at West Cessnock News Agency.

West Cessnock News and Homewares won’t be forgetting this year and have put together an amazing Anzac display in the front window of the News Agency, which pays tribute to a local Anzac Frank Rennex who was born 4 July 1918 and died on 7 April, 2011. Frank Rennex enlisted in 1939 and was discharged in early 1944.

The display also includes other wartime items including medals, books, old newspaper articles and flags. The display can be viewed by all and some of these items are available to be purchased from West Cessnock News and Homewares located on Wollombi Rd, Cessnock.
