At the heart of the Memorial building is the Roll of Honour: a long series of bronze panels recording the names of over 102,000 members of the Australian armed forces who have died during or as a result of war service, warlike service, non-warlike service and certain peacetime humanitarian operations. The database compiled from data used to create the Roll of Honour is available on this web site.

At present, over 14,000 of the names on the online Roll of Honour have photographs linked to them. The Memorial will gradually add photographs of other men and women on the Roll of Honour as images become available.

We prefer to link good quality original portraits of service men and women, ideally in uniform, for linking to the Roll of Honour.  If you have an original photographic portrait of someone who is listed on the Roll of Honour, you can either donate it to the Memorial or lend it to us for copying.

The photographs are copied to an exceptionally high archival standard in the Memorial’s dedicated multimedia laboratory, before being returned to you. In order to maintain the quality of items in the National Collection, and to best allow for all potential future uses of these photographs, we are unable to accept copy prints, emailed images, photocopies, digitally altered images, images from other websites or those embedded in PDF files or Microsoft Word documents.

Please do not send a portrait without first contacting the Photographs Section on (02) 6243 4593 or email photographs@awm.gov.au to discuss its possible inclusion.

Due to the tremendous response to this project, we would appreciate your patience, as it may take more than six months before we can return the photograph to you. We recognise that these photographs are precious and acknowledge the trust you are placing with us.
