Rolls of Honour

The Ambulatory contains 42 bronze caskets which house the 40 Books of Remembrance (38 Australian Imperial Force, one Royal Australian Navy and one book including Victorians who served in other than Australian Forces). Carefully inscribed by eight calligraphers, the Books of Remembrance contain the names of the 89,100 members of the Australian Imperial Force, the Royal Australian Navy and the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force who were either born or enlisted in Victoria and served overseas in World War I, or died in camp prior to embarkation. An electronic version of the Books of Remembrance is available online – you can search for your loved ones and lay a poppy in their honour. Visitors to the Galleries can also lay a poppy on the electronic Rolls of Honour for the Second World War (1939–45), the Korean War (1950–53) and the Vietnam War (1962–75).
