Centenary projects - Roll of Honour Name Projections

2 mins read

Names of First World War soldiers will be projected onto the dome of the Australian War Memorial to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

From 4 August 2014 until November 2018, the names of each of the 62,000 Australians listed on the First World War Roll of Honour panels in the Memorial’s Commemorative Area will be projected onto the exterior of the Memorial building.

Members of the public are invited to watch the projections taking place nightly at the Memorial. Names will be displayed from sunset to sunrise each night throughout the centenary period, 2014-18. Each name will appear around 15 to 20 times over the course of the four year period.

The Memorial has developed an online method of estimating in which the general public can input a name, on the Memorial’s website and receive information on the anticipated time and date that a name will be displayed.

The project is part of the Memorial’s extensive centenary program, which seeks to commemorate the service and sacrifice of Australians and to interpret their experience of the First World War, and its enduring impact on Australian society.

From the night of 11 November 2018 projections will continue to be displayed nightly starting with the names of those who gave their lives during the Second World War. Times will be update on our website soon.
