Centenary of the Somme

Tags: Primary, Secondary, First World War (1914 – 1918), Posters

Almost 300,000 Australians served on the Western Front in France and Flanders, taking part in every major British offensive between 1916 and the Armistice in 1918. More than 46,000 lost their lives, of whom some 18,000 have no known grave. 

Behind the front line they took every opportunity to rest and recover, including these three men of the 1st Division photographed in Vignacourt, France. 

On the day of the Battle of Fromelles, these eight men of the 53rd Battalion prepared to take part in an attack that only three of them would survive.

Commemorating the Centenary of the Gallipoli Landings

Tags: Primary, Secondary, First World War (1914 – 1918), Posters

The two Anzac Day posters highlight the significance of the landings at Gallipoli. The images capture a moment in time as men step off the boats and begin their climb up the steep terrain. The photograph shows members of No. 2 Field Company, Royal Australian Engineers, as they land on the morning of 25 April while members of the 7th Battalion advance up a gully on the left. The painting by Australian artist William Beckwith McInnes is one of many artistic interpretations of the landings at Anzac Cove in 1915. The posters call on the audience to imagine the physical challenge as well as the danger from bullets and shells on that first day, and prompts reflection on the individual story of each soldier as they step ashore. Their experiences became part of the broader Anzac story.

Schooling, Service and the Great War (Primary Resource)

Tags: Primary, First World War (1914 – 1918), Education Resource

This educational resource investigates the diverse experiences of Australian school communities during the Great War. Each investigation uses primary and secondary sources to look at what students were learning about the British Empire, its Allies and enemies, the consequences on daily life at school, the values taught, the patriotic activities undertaken, the reasons why some students and teachers enlisted and responses to the loss or wounding of people from school communities.

Each investigation has ‘tuning in’ and ‘going further’ learning activities and is particularly relevant for students in Years 2, 3 and 6.
