Serving Country Session 4

On Friday 26th September 2014, State Library of Queensland hosted The Serving Country Forum,part of the Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation (a State Library of Queensland initiative proudly supported by the Queensland Government.)

When war was declared in 1914, many Indigenous men were the first to try to enlist, although it wasn’t until April 1917 that Indigenous enlistment was permitted. These young men fought valiantly for their country, they stood side by side with their fellow Australians in the hope of bringing equality to their communities. Until recently these stories and this history was virtually unknown.
