80th anniversary of the Siege of Tobruk
This month, we reflect on the 8-month siege in which some 14,000 Australian troops served, earning their iconic nickname 'Rats of Tobruk' from the Germans. Our short film captures the reflections of 6 Australian veterans who served in North Africa and survived the siege.
