Between 2014-2018, nations around the world, including Australia, are commemorating the centenary of the First World War. However this period also includes other anniversaries of theatres of war including the Second World War, the Vietnam, Korean and Gulf wars.

While memorials around the country honour our service personnel, what are the stories behind the names that are forever more etched in stone?

This exhibition reveals primarily the stories of Eden’s First World War veterans commemorated at Eden’s war memorial, but also highlights histories such as the Forgotten Fleet and the American Kitty Hawk planes crashes of the Second World War..
