FUTURE generations will be able to learn about Monto's involvement in the First World War through a new documentary that can be viewed for free.

The stories of six men who fought in the war and later came to call Monto home are heard in Local Voices, Living Stories: Monto Remembers its Anzacs.

Grahame Sanderson was invited to talk about his father Horace Sanderson in the film.

"There has been a lot of grant money given out for lots of different causes in the past, and I thought this is one of the best ways to spend it," he said.

"It gives the younger generation some inkling into what life was like."

The other men whose stories are told in the documentary series are Edward "Ted" Bryans, Stanley Forsyth, John "Jack" McInnes and Colin and Frank "Les" Hampson.

"All those Diggers would have been proud in what was shown here today," Mr Sanderson said.

"I felt a mixture of emotion and amazement at what the troops had to go through in World War One and what a terrible waste of life."

The series can be borrowed from any of the North Burnett Regional Council libraries, viewed at the Monto Cultural Complex and soon it will be on the North Burnett Regional Council website.
