Centenary of WWI exhibition

Small Grant
$5,000 (exc GST)
Grant number: 

To mark last year's centenary of the beginning of WWI, and to acknowledge the many Victorian lawyers who fought alongside the Allied troops between 1914–18, biographies of these men have been written as part of the Stories from the memorial board online project.

The researchers obtained information about the 159 men named on a large wooden honour board that hangs in the foyer of the Supreme Court of Victoria, along with photos of many of them, through the National Archives of Australia, the Australian War Memorial, the National Library of Australia as well as local historical societies, among many other resources.
