Laughing in the face of adversity
Free public talk
Research Centre Reading Room, 12.30 pm
From the First World War to Afghanistan, Australian entertainers have always been quick to commit their time and energy to our troops. From enthusiastic amateurs to professional performances, they have helped boost the morale of our serving men and women as they endure considerable danger and hardship in their service to the nation. Join curators from the Research Centre to hear stories from the collection related to humour, war, and performance.
