    In Changed forever, stories of migrants who have resettled in Australia from war-torn countries are presented beside those of recent veterans of overseas service in the Australian Defence Force. This moving exhibition explores the impacts of global and civil conflict in changing lives and shaping contemporary Australia.

    All have been redefined by the emotional and physical dislocation of war, and seek to reconcile this with their new lives.

    Enhanced with art, objects, photographs, audio-visuals and interactives, their personal stories reflect the range and depth of experiences in conflict and life post war.

    Please check the venue websites for current advice on opening hours in light of the current coronavirus pandemic.

    The 9th Division fought in four major campaigns during the Second World War: the Siege of Tobruk (1941), the El Alamein battles (1942), the Huon Peninsula operations in New Guinea (1943), and the landings in British North Borneo (1945). 

    Each year near to 23 October a service is held to mark the beginning of the Second Battle of El Alamein (23 October - 5 November 1942), a battle which marked the beginning of the end for Axis forces in North Africa.

    The 9th Division will be supported by students and staff of Scotch College, as participants in the Shrine's Adopt an Ex-Service Organisation program. This partnership fosters relationships and enables schools to carry on the legacy of their chosen Association.
