Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

THE Bat­tle of Aus­tralia ex­hibit is in Rockingham over the An­zac week.

South Met­ro­pol­i­tan Re­gion MLC Phil Ed­man said the ex­hibit was or­gan­ised to co­in­cide with An­zac Day.

“The sac­ri­fices made by the men and women of Aus­tralia dur­ing the Sec­ond World War on our home soil is noth­ing short of re­mark­able and must be hon­oured,” he said.

The ex­hibit fea­tures a range of World War II mem­o­ra­bilia and an as­sort­ment of equip­ment used by the Ja­panese Im­pe­rial Forces and the Aus­tralian Army.

Also on dis­play will be sto­ry­boards out­lin­ing the se­quence of events that threat­ened Aus­tralia’s sur­vival, in­clud­ing the de­tails of the nu­mer­ous bomb­ings con­ducted by the Ja­panese.

“When viewed in its en­tirety, the vast col­lec­tion of arte­facts and vis­ual aids as­sist in telling the story of these brave Aus­tralians who de­fended our coast­line dur­ing the Sec­ond World War,” Mr Ed­man said.
