The Trumpet Calls - Albury's WWI Battery

18 Apr - 14 Jun 2015

World War I (1914 – 1918) helped create our nation’s identity. The Trumpet Calls is a compelling exhibition at the Albury LibraryMuseum covering conditions on the battlefield, life on the home front and the role of women and Indigenous Australians during the Great War.

An “experiential” replica bunker, a depiction of the dugout occupied by Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Shellshear, an Albury doctor, will provide a small insight into the horrific conditions of war.

The exhibition includes a tunic and medals awarded to Albury soldier, Sergeant George Bishop; a self portrait of Victoria Cross recipient Captain Albert Borella; portion of a gun sight from one of the Albury Battery guns inscribed ’Noreuil 2-4-17 and many other objects and stories that reflect our regions involvement in the war to end all wars.

The exhibition has been developed in partnership with the Light Horse Museum, North Bandiana.
