State Records Public Service / War Service exhibition extended

Our exhibition Public Service / War Service, currently on display at the Western Sydney Records Centre, has been extended until 30 September 2016. Drawing from the State archives, the exhibition honours 11,000 NSW government employees who volunteered for military service overseas during World War I, and those who fulfilled essential services at home. New exhibition-related content that furthers the links between public service and war service will be published on the NSW Anzac Centenary website in the coming months.
Following Public Service / War Service, a new exhibition will be launched. With a focus on the State’s photographic archive, the exhibition will extend the key themes of the New South Wales Centenary of World War I and Anzac commemorative program.
