Coming Home: An investigation of the Armistice and Repatriation

Coming Home: An investigation of the Armistice and Repatriation allows secondary students to investigate the impact of the war on those who served and those who welcomed them home. The online resource includes teaching activities that encourage students to investigate the roles the Repatriation Commission and the Soldier Settlement Scheme played in assisting returned servicemen to reintegrate into the Australian community. It also looks at soldiers’ case studies and how the war contributed to the change in traditionally gender-specific roles.
