Greece, Crete and Syria
The AIF in the Eastern Mediterranean 1941 30 September 2011 - 19 February 2012

In April and May 1941, the 6th Australian Division fought valiant but ultimately unsuccessful campaigns in Greece and Crete. In June and July the same year, the 7th Australian Division fought an unexpectedly vicious and politically embarrassing campaign against men who had once been allies, the Vichy French, in Syria. This exhibition, incorporating contemporary portraits by Peter Wegner, celebrates the exploits of these brave Australians.
