The physical Books of Remembrance will temporarily be off public display on the following dates:

  • Monday 21 May to Monday 25 June
  • Further intermittent disruption to access occurring until Friday 13 July, inclusive

The Books of Remembrance, carefully inscribed by eight calligraphers, 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. There are thirty-eight Army and Flying Corps Books, one Naval Book and one Sundry Book which contains the names of Victorians who served in non-Australian units. The names appear in alphabetical order with no distinction of rank, although decorations are cited. Where there are identical names, the service number is recorded for further identification.
