Memorial Box 3 -Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander wartime service

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people please be aware that this resource contains images and names of deceased persons.

Filled with real and replica uniforms, equipment and artefacts, this Memorial Box explores the unique wartime experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and their significant contribution to Australia’s defence over time.


Memorial Box 4 – Australia in the Second World War

This Memorial Box explores the Australian experience of the Second World War – a war that seemed to affect every aspect of life, with Australia itself coming under attack. Almost a million Australians served, at home and abroad, on land, at sea, or in the air. Their stories come to life as you unpack the real and replica Second World War items in this Box.




The boxes are free to use, however freight charges will apply if the boxes require transportation.
