Stories of Australian innovation in wartime.

In the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra there are 15 stained-glass windows. Each shows a figure dressed in military uniform, and under each figure is a word which describes a quality displayed by Australians during wartime. '

One window features an aircraftman. He represents all service men and women who have found creative and bold solutions to difficult problems in wartime.

This window bears the word Resource.
