Boer War collection

The Museum now has the largest collection of original Boer War medals on display in Australia. Director and researcher Allan Woodward has compiled the stories for the 86 men represented.

Do we have medals and information relating to your family member? Check our alphabetical list.

This is just a part of the ongoing research conducted at the museum. Our extensive library houses many forms of written historical data including over 2,000 books, primarily of Australian and New Zealand military history, dating from pre Boer War and pre Federation to the present. Hundreds of files are made up of original military documents, photographs, serviceman's diaries, newspapers, periodicals, maps and correspondence.

Using the detailed computer cataloguing system, any book or file may be found by using author's name, subject, family name or period.
