Memoirs of the Queensland Museum – Culture Volume 11 is available in hardcopy from the Museum Shop. Queensland Remembers is an outcome of the research conducted over several years to support the Anzac Legacy Gallery. This high-quality peer-reviewed volume will appeal to those who are interested in First World War history.
The publication focuses on the stories behind collection objects held by the Queensland Museum that can be found on display at Cobb+Co, TWRM and at Queensland Museum South Bank. The individual papers focus on less often explored topics related to the First World War including representations of Indigenous war-time experiences in museums and galleries, railway histories, war trophies and the experience of returned soldiers.
