Macarthur: Discovering stories of sacrifice

This documentary aims to inform and educate Victorians about the experiences of World War I veterans and their communities. It includes interviews with residents of Macarthur, a small town in Victoria’s Western District, who have been researching the roles their relatives played in WWI and any stories or historical facts that they have gleaned along the way. This research uncovered a number of interesting stories, artefacts and photographs, either personal or from newspapers of the time.

This project was funded by the Anzac Centenary grants program, delivered by the Victorian Government, with the project being managed by the Macarthur RSL. The full documentary (24mins) is available upon request.

Snippets of social comment produce the ultimate ethnographic communication tool.
