The Australian War Memorial is fortunate to receive hundreds of offers for donations each year. The offers vary from medals to uniforms, artwork and photographs, medical kits and ration packs, to even the occasional aircraft.
It was January 1991, and Jason was a signalman on board the Royal Australian Navy supply ship, HMAS Success, when the Gulf War began.
The Memorial’s Digitisation Project aims to digitise collection items at risk of deterioration, including paper records, film, audio, and images. This process will help to preserve the original items and enable the collection to be more accessible to researchers in future.
