On this day

27 June 1911

Royal Military College, Duntroon, opens



What's New At the Memorial


  1. Framing memory

    Imagine trying to work on the reverse of a fragile sheet of glass while looking in a mirror.

  2. Forget me not

    It’s a striking portrait of a young man about to head off to war. He stares straight at the camera, the words “Forget me not” carefully painted on the reverse of the intricate glass frame.

  3. 'We had a job to do and we wouldn’t let any of our crew down'

    Laurie Woods, now 95, served with Bomber Command during the Second World War and was one of more than 3,300 Australians who were involved in the D-Day campaign.
