On December 3, 2009, the Australian War Memorial will be opening its exhibition “Of love and war”.  

The impact of war on romantic relationships and the ways in which Australians incorporated affairs of the heart into their wartime lives  is a powerful subject and we would like the public to contribute their stories via our Flickr group.

This group is running in conjunction with the exhibition and we are excited to have this opportunity to allow people to tell their stories of love and war. The images can be photos or scans (there are already a number of wonderful letters in the group) and we would love you to tell us as much as possible about the subjects in the images as you can – you can do this through the comments area. 

You have to be a member of the group to add images and remember that you need at least 4 images in your Flickr account for them to become visible. If you have any questions, please contact me (I am the group administrator) via email emma.jones@awm.gov.au or leave a comment on this blog post and I’ll get back to you.
