The 2014 Remembrance Day poster features an artwork titled First convoy at sea, depicting the convoy of ships that sailed from Albany in Western Australia on 1 November 1914 carrying 30,000 men and 8000 horses overseas for service in the First World War.  En route, HMAS Sydney destroyed the German raider SMS Emden, ensuring the convoy’s safe passage through the Indian Ocean.

Some 295,000 Australians served on the western front. Over 46,000 died there and 134,000 were wounded or captured. These numbers can be misleading as the average strength of the AIF in France and Belgium was only 120,000. As with all armies, there was a constant turnover of personnel owing to death, wounds and illness. This can be seen in the numbers who served in a typical Australian Western Front infantry battalion. The 42nd, from Queensland, left England for the front 1027 strong in November 1916. In two years fighting 2954 men served in the battalion, of whom 544 were killed in battle, or died of wounds or sickness. An additional 1450 were wounded, 320 of them more than once—13 men were wounded four times. Two 42nd Battalion men were captured by the enemy. Like all Australian infantry battalions normal strength of 1000 was impossible to maintain as the war went on. When the 42nd attacked the Hindenburg Line in late September 1918 it had less than 300 men.

This educational resource has been developed for primary and secondary schools in collaboration with the Shrine of Remembrance.  Two versions of this education resource have been developed to target primary and secondary schools.

These resources acknowledge the service and sacrifice of Indigenous men and women from the First World War to the present and provide a social and political context of their service in the light of past racial discrimination.

These publications will be welcomed as a learning resource in all Australian classrooms, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. The writers have drawn on well-known and well-documented stories from across the nation.
