ANZAC EXHIBITION - We Fought the Good Fight.

01 Apr - 31 May 2018

ANZAC EXHIBITION – We Fought the Good Fight.
The letters and stories of Echuca -Moama’s soldiers in 1918
1st April – 30th May
at Echuca Historical Society Museum, 1 Dickson Street Echuca 3564
The Australian forces were exhausted and depleted after the mud and ice of Passchendaele . Germany held the upper hand. What did our local soldiers write home about?
The effects of the war at home meant women were increasingly assuming the physical and financial burdens of caring for their families. What was happening in Echuca – Moama?
11am on the 11th day of the 11th month was the end of the European War and the beginning of the repatriation of thousands of Australian service men. How did the Riverine Herald report this event? The Light Horse was still in Palestine, what are their stories?
In pictures and words, the Echuca Historical Society attempts to answer these questions
From 1st April till 30th May, the exhibition is open daily from 11am till 3pm.
Groups welcome to arrange a time to suit. Further information 03 54801325 or AH 0408505662
