The two Remembrance Day posters for this year feature images of Australian soldiers on patrol during the Malayan Emergency and Indonesian Confrontation.  During the 1950s and 1960s, Australian forces were engaged in two conflicts involving Malaya.  British Commonwealth forces played a key role in combating a twelve-year long Communist insurgency, known as the Malayan Emergency, between 1948 and 1960.  From 1964, Australians served in support of the newly federated state of Malaysia.  This second conflict, known as Confrontation, ended in 1966, by which time Australians had engaged in operations in Indonesian territory and on the Malayan peninsula.

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.
