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.

Resource: stories of Australian innovation in wartime is an education resource produced by the Department of Veterans' Affairs in conjunction with the Australian War Memorial (authored by Jennet Cole-Adams and Judy Gauld). It tells of Australia's resourcefulness and contribution to war-related innovations that help service men and women to operate efficiently and safely during wartime - from surviving in harsh environments without specialist equipment, to deceiving the enemy with ingenious plans or inventing new and effective weapons.
