AWM Centenary of the First World War update

Australian War Memorial :
December saw the redevelopment plans of our First World War galleries unveiled to the media. Initial works include the conservation of our much-loved dioramas.

The Pozi̬res and Somme Winter dioramas are now back on display, after receiving attention from our conservation team. Be sure to visit the First World War galleries to catch a glimpse of the Bullecourt and Ypres dioramas before they are hoarded off on 29 January until April 2013 Рat which time the entire Western Front gallery will be closing for an extended period of time.
