Note Includes Bibliographical references (pages 22-23) Music has always played a significant role in wartime, as a means of communication, for boosting morale, as an aid for recruitment, and for reflecting cultural values. However, very little is known about the music written by Australian servicemen from the First World War. In commemoration of the centenary of the First World War, this research is valuable in generating a deeper understanding of Australian First World War servicemen and their musical contribution to society. This report provided analysis of the significant influences affecting the music and lyrics wirtten by Australian Servicemen in the First World War. Six pieces (written by five individuals) held in the collection of the Australian War Memorial were analysed. This research aimed to id entify the personal stories behind the Australian composers and Lyricists, and gained greater understanding of how their individual war-time experiences impacted their works. In addition, the sentiments present in society at the time were discussed to ad d depth to the understanding of what influenced the six compositions. The results of this research established that the personal experiences such as military interaction, particular campaigns, a longing for home, and grief, combined with social sentiment s such as ties to Britain, Australian patriotism, the need for recruitment and increased morale, all significantly impacted the music and lyrics written by Australian servicemen from the First World War.
