To Flanders Field

A new First World War blog has been set up. Here’s how they describe it:

This blog has been created to introduce and inform people of our forthcoming exhibition To Flanders Fields, 1917 which will open in August 2007 at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. This exhibition marks the 90th anniversary of this terrible and most costly year of war for the Australians as they campaigned through northern France to Flanders, culminating in the Battle of Passchendaele. The exhibition will depict the service, courage and sacrifice of Australians during this ordeal, and how we commemorate them to this day.

In particular, the blog seeks to,

  • Support the exhibition and stimulate interest in it during the lead up to opening, and to provide a sample of what will appear in the exhibition.
  • Record and relate some of the exhibition team’s experiences in putting together the exhibition.
  • Provide an online exhibition of sorts for the benefit of those unable to attend the exhibition in Canberra.
  • Provide additional content to support the exhibition for those who want to know more, or for material we couldn’t fit into the physical exhibition.
