Each Tuesday evening the club meets for dinner and frequently has an interesting guest speaker.

Yesterday we were treated to an fascinating talk by Nola Anderson, Assistant Director and Branch Head, National Collection, at the Australian War Memorial.

With over 20 years’ experience at the War Memorial, Nola has an in-depth knowledge of its collection, its history and the many stories that bring it to life.

She entertained us with some interesting stories of some of the exhibits in the Memorial’s collection.

Australian war memorial bookNola presented the club with a copy of her new book ‘Australian War Memorial: Treasures from a Century of Collecting’ which was hot off the press. The book will be available from the Australian War Memorial and leading book retailers from November 1st 2012.

We will auction our copy for club fundraising.

Thank you Nola.
