Exhibitions, Lawrence of Arabia and the Light Horse AUDIO TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION

In this post we provide an audio tour that you can listen to online or download the podcast.

When things slow down I'll post some images and information about the opening, but currently I am still spending about 3-4 hours a day running tours as the exhibition seems pretty popular so far. Don't panic! It is open until 25 May 2008.

Aircraft 1914 - 1918 Aerial Operations

Four Australian squadrons flew operationally. No.1 Squadron AFC had a unique role, serving in Egypt, Palestine and Syria. Its airmen undertook reconnaissance and bombing and were often drawn into aerial combat. Lieutenant Frank McNamara won the Victoria Cross for rescuing a downed comrade under fire; it was the first to an Australian airman.
