Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a museum, and an archive. It focuses on the Australians who have died in war, from the time of the first settlement at Sydney Cove in the 18th century until the peacekeeping roles under United Nations auspices. On some parts of the website there are also digitized primary sources concerning the history of Europe available:

  • Anzac Connections. In August 2015 the first collections were available (more under development): 150 collections of private records related to individuals who served in the First World War. Material includes letters, private diaries, unit diaries, memoirs, and postcards. They come from people of various ranks: privates, officers, nurses, as well as journalists and observers.
  • A camera on Gallipoli. The photographs of Charles Ryan during the First World War.
  • Digitised records: war diaries (from the First World War, Second World War, Korean War, and South East Asian conflicts); reports of proceedings, HMA ships and establishments; records of C.E.W. Bean; official histories; and biographical databases with links to digitised archival records.
