I have also been busy preparing the Royal WA Historical Society's exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the Great War. Beyond the Battlefields opened on April 20, and will be up until at least the end of September. If you live close enough, we'd love you to visit
Beyond the Battlefields…
humble objects, powerful stories
The Great War's intensely personal impact reached deep into Western Australian communities, and continued to be felt long after the guns fell silent.
Shrapnel fragments removed from a head wound, post cards sent to loved ones, a blood-stained Red Cross armband, tiny dresses purchased in France for a baby daughter not yet met, embroidery stitched by returned soldiers...
on display at the Royal Western Australian Historical Society
49 Broadway Nedlands (corner of Clark Street)
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 5pm
