On January 6, 1916, 12 local men set off from Delegate as part of a recruitment drive for gathering men to volunteer to serve in World War 1. The men marched behind a large ‘Men From Snowy River’ banner, 220 miles to Goulburn, via Bombala, Nimmitabel, Cooma and Queanbeyan. Along the way speeches and recruitment meetings were held in each town they passed through and when they reached Goulburn, 144 men had volunteered. The Men From Snowy River War Memorial (monument) is located at the corner of Bombala St & Victoria Parade. The town’s museum (School of Arts) features a replica of this banner and many other interesting items.
