Soldier On: WW1 Soldier Settler Stories
|Soldier On: WW1 Soldier Settler Stories|
Now showing at Old Treasury Building
Exhibition open 10am-4pm, Sunday-Friday (Closed Saturday)
Soldier On: WW1 Soldier Settler Stories features records from the state archives of Public Record Office Victoria revealing previously untold stories of the Victorian soldier settler experience.
Between 1918 and 1934 the Soldier Settlement Scheme helped settle some 11,000 returned soldiers on farming land across the state through government leases.
Through original archival records, as well as first-hand video and photos, the exhibition will take visitors through the establishment of the WW1 Soldier Settlement Scheme in Victoria and the harsh realities of life on a soldier settlement farm.
Presented by Old Treasury Building and supported by the Australian Government's Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund.
As part of our 'Soldier On: WWI Soldier Settler Stories' public program, Old Treasury are hosting FREE floor talks twice a month.
