Wagin – Janet and I very much enjoyed our visit to the Wagin Historical Village in Western Australia. We highly recommend a visit as there are many interesting historical attractions to see for people of all ages. Many thanks to all the volunteers who were so friendly and welcoming which greatly enhanced the pleasure of our visit. We especially wanted to see the Police Honour Board which is dedicated to the Police Officers who served the district of Wagin from 1894. I am proud to say that the name of my father, 1458 Police Sergeant Alexander Duperouzel, is listed on the Police Honour Board having served as the Officer-in-Charge during 1939-1944. Also on display in the Trading Post building is the Remington portable typewriter used by my father plus some photographs kindly donated by my brother Ken. It was a great comfort to know that my brothers Ken & his wife Audrey, together with Jack and my sister Loris represented the Duperouzel family at the official unveiling ceremony of the Police Honour Board in 2005.
