SOME 36,000 households across the Hastings will receive a brochure dedicated to the centenary of Anzac.
The brochure, commissioned by Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams, contains stories from across the electorate.
It honours three generations of the Duck family from Kendall who served in three different theatres of war, provides insights about life in World War 1 thanks to Lansdowne digger Stan Hardes' diary and highlights the military career of Port Macquarie's Alban Charles Elliot.
They are just some of the stories featured in the eight-page booklet.
Mrs Williams said the brochure marked a significant occasion.
"It's really important, particularly as we commemorate the centenary of Anzac, that people understand the significance of that battle at Gallipoli and that fact not only did thousands of people lose their lives but pretty well every community across Australia was impacted by that battle," she said.
"Communities right across Australia and New Zealand will have stories to tell."
The brochure will arrive in 36,000 letterboxes across the Port Macquarie electorate from the end of the week.
Port Macquarie RSL Sub-branch president Greg Laird said the brochure was absolutely brilliant.
"I think when people read some of the deeds of the people in here [the brochure], it does give an insight into what happened," he said.
