How Were Australian War Records Collected in The First Place?
Well, the answer is quite simple - during World
War I the Australian government established the
Australian War Records
Section (also known as AWRS) of the Australian army,
which will celebrate its 100th birthday in 5 years
from today. Not many people know that fact, but
formally the AWRS was established in May of 1917,
and grew to include over 600 military and civilian
As history shows, the AWRS department appointed to
be responsible for collecting soldiers war records,
and then they made all they can to expand this
database in order to preserve any and all records
that were relevant to the Australia’s military
experience throughout the years.
Between the remainders of
World War I
it amassed more than 25,000 different documents,
private files, pictures, photographs, and other
memorabilia, which have become over the years -
vital documents with an enormous value.
You should know that a couple of years after the
AWRS was established, another related decision was
made by the Australian government. Thus, almost 100
years ago the Australian government decided, only
two years after the foundation of the AWRS to
establish a new Australian institution, which
was named the "Australian War Memorial", and it
was founded during 1919.
Today, if we want to look at everything from above,
the memorial is comprised of three parts, one of
which is the research centre where all the war
memorial records are kept for generations, and this
is the place where people can go in order to get
some information about their loved ones.
Not many people know, but those Australian war records can be easily
found by running a quick search query of any soldier's name in the
search box located at the upper part of this online page. All you
have to do in order to start your search process is to insert the
soldier's first and last name and click on the "search" button and
