Speaker: Andrew Turnbull
Date: 20th April, 2017
Description: We sent off for a Memorial Museum in a Box – Australians in WWI, from the Australian War Museum. Listen as teacher (and War History aficionado), Andrew Turnbull, takes students on a journey through the box – describing the significance and purpose of each item.
Memorial Boxes are available across Australia.
“Filled with real and replica uniforms, equipment and artefacts, this resource will transport you back 100 years to the most traumatic time in our nation’s history: when 330,000 Australians set sail from our shores and 61,514 never returned home.”
