Anzac Connections Search

In December 2013 we will be adding a new search facility to our website.

The new search will allow you to search all the information on our website from one search box; for example, you will be able to type a name or a topic into the search box and see all the information we have which is related to that name or topic.

Once the new search is live, it will be available from the search box on the top right hand corner of every page and also through the “Collection” tab in the main menu on the site.

First World War Centenary, Anzac Connections

The Australian War Memorial is currently undertaking a project to create a comprehensive digital archive of the ANZACs and their deeds, and of the wider Australian experience of war.  The collections are selected from our extensive archives and reflect the experiences of Australian servicemen, nurses and civilians during the First World War, not just well-known personalities. This project will digitally preserve the Memorial’s collections as well as provide full copies for research on the Memorial’s website.

Today was the day, the culmination of our trip and a chance for us to commemorate the lives, the service and the sacrifice of the Australians we have been learning about for the past days. It also gives the students an oppurtunity to contribute to this national commemoration. The dawn was mild again this year and only needed the sleeping bag for comfort not warmth. It is a long day but rewarding and especially for the students and an experience and memory that will last a lifetime. Rachel played a special part in the ceremony today;

Today was an opportunity for us to have a shorter day in preparation for the ANZAC day activities.

Looking at the experience of the Turkish and the conditions that the Turkish faced is an important way to provide a balance to the tour. It is always a challenge on this day because do security changes, road closures and dignitaries so we always have to play it by ear a little. Bryce reflected on today;

Today is an interesting day for the kids. we spend sometime exploring further but the spend the afternoon rehearsing for ANZAC Day. The department of Veterans Affairs is generous enough to provide a role for the student for the activities before the dawn service and then at the Lone Pine service later in the day. It is an amazing opportunity for them. We started the day with a cruise that gives the perspective of what the Australians would seen when they landed at the beaches. We drifted of ANZAC cove and the formidable obstacle of the terrain is never more apparent.
