Anzac Hall Mezzanine

Against All Odds is an exhibition exploring just a few of the amazing stories of how courage, determination, and sometimes a little bit of luck can be all that stands between a person and death, wounding, or capture. From the First World War to Afghanistan come these stories of near misses and survival against all odds.

Below is a selection of stories featured in the exhibition.
