Stories from World War II

August 15 2020 marked 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 collected stories from the South Australian community about their experiences during the war and in the years after. These stories were from those who served both on the ground and in support roles as well as the stories of those at home experiencing the war from afar.

These stories showcase how the war and the end of the war shaped our state and our society for generations to come.
