FEATURED ARTICLES
  1. Merle Hare was in a daze. It was early March 1945, and her twin brother, Sergeant Donald Kelway Storrie, was missing, presumed dead. His plane had disappeared while laying mines in the South China Sea and she would never hear from him again.

  2. 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.

  3. It was January 1991, and Jason was a signalman on board the Royal Australian Navy supply ship, HMAS Success, when the Gulf War began.
