Not Just A Name on A Wall

This website can be used by history students and amateur historians to research the stories of Australian soldiers serving in World War 1. The real world problem the site addresses is the long lists of anonymous names on Australia’s many WW1 memorials (focussing on the Coonabarabran War Memorial Clock Tower). The real tasks students undertake may address the simplistic view by younger generations of the impact of past Wars on Australians.
