Australian War Memorial @ Wanneroo Gallery

Event Title: Nurses: from Zululand to Afghanistan

Participating Artists: Australian War Memorial

Venue: Wanneroo Gallery, 3 Rocca Way, Wanneroo.

Description: Australian nurses have been going to war for well over 100 years, but their important contribution to Australia’s overseas military operations often goes unreported.

The Australian War Memorial’s latest travelling exhibition, Nurses: from Zululand to Afghanistan, explores the involvement of nurses from the first known Australian in the Zulu War of 1879, right up to the experiences of the male and female nurses serving in recent conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

Using the Memorial’s rich collection, the exhibition will highlight the personal stories of army, air force and navy nurses who have served overseas, the difficulties and challenges they faced.

Dates: 28 February 2014 to 27 April 2014.

Opening Times: Tue - Fri 10-4pm; Sat - Sun 12-4pm.
