We are excited to be the Victorian agent for the Australian War Memorial’s Memorial Box program.
Memorial Boxes are an engaging, interactive learning resource suitable for schools, community groups and aged care facilities. Each thematic box is filled with real and replica uniforms, equipment, artefacts, and more. The following boxes are available for loan.
Box 1 - Australians in the First World War
This Memorial Box is filled with real and replica uniforms, equipment and artefacts from the First World War. It includes objects that explore the Anzac experience, as well as the contribution of Australian sailors, airmen, nurses, and those at home during a defining period in our nation’s history.
Box 2 - Australia in Wartime and Peacekeeping Operations since 1946
This Memorial Box includes real and replica items relating to Australian experiences in wartime and peacekeeping since the end of the Second World War. Through objects, images, and online resources, students can explore Australia’s involvement in places such as Korea, Vietnam, East Timor, Bougainville, and Afghanistan.
Box 4 - Australia in the Second World War
This Memorial Box explores the Australian experience of the Second World War - the war that seemed to affect every aspect of life as Australia itself came under attack. Almost a million Australians served at home and abroad; on land, at sea, or in the air. Their stories come to life as you unpack the real and replica Second World War items in this Box.
Boxes are free to loan apart from the cost of delivery of the boxes to and from organisations and are available
in 2 week loan periods, including shipping time. Organisations are responsible for organising the pick-up and return. On-site pick-up is available Monday - Friday. Booking periods may be flexible depending on demand.
