Even as the guns fell silent over the battlefields of Europe in 1918, Australia’s military leaders were planning to commemorate pivotal Australian victories through a series of monuments on the Western Front. In Australia too, communities motivated by loss, grief and a determination to never forget the cost to a generation, erected hundreds of war memorials across the land.

This talk by Dr Bronwyn Hughes will explore motives for commemoration—victory, honour and remembrance—through a range of key monuments to Australia’s service men and women.

Arrive 5.30pm for a 6pm start. Entry by donation, bookings essential.
