Au War Memorial LogoWe haven't relayed the Australian War Memorial's eMemorial newsletter for a while, so here's a catch up with the August 2017 issue:

Reflections: honouring our WWII veterans

This week, the Memorial became the official custodians of 6,500 contemporary photographic portraits of Australian Second World War veterans.

The largest photographic project ever undertaken in Australia, Reflections: honouring our WWII veterans was the brainchild of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, who began the project in 2015.

These images are now projected in the Memorial's Second World War Galleries for the appreciation of visitors. Once accessioned into the collection, they will be accessible to the public as part of the Memorial's online collection.
