Stories from World War Two
August 15, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Pacific and the end of Australia’s involvement in World War Two.
To mark the occasion Veterans SA is collecting stories from the South Australian community about their experiences during the war and in the years after. These stories can be from those who served both on the ground and in support roles as well as the stories of those who were at home experiencing the war from afar.
Over the next 12 months we will be showcasing how the war and the end of the war shaped our state and our society for a generation to come.
If you would like to be part of this project over the next 12 months and share yours or a family member’s story from the end of World War Two click here.
