Remembering Australians in the First World War

The presentation of medals to troops of ANZAC Mounted Division by General Sir Edmund Allenby, 1918
Dr Jenny Macleod explores Australia’s experience of the First World War and traces how it has been remembered ever since.

July and August 2018 mark the centenary of what General Monash termed ‘The Australian Victories in France in 1918’.

Australia’s pride in its military role in the First World War has been used as the basis of its national identity. And the 21st century has seen an intense period of emotional and political investment in the commemoration of the Anzacs.
