Anzac Day 2016
Loading the Chapman flag onto the back of a 106mm RCL Land Rover for the Anzac Day Parade in Brisbane. We were placed almost at the front of the march and received a good reception from the crowd. We got a good interview with Channel 10, although only a very small bit was broadcast. I will try and upload it later.
The assistance of 9RQR in transporting and recovering the flag as well as providing an escort is greatly appreciated. After the march the flag was taken to the OR's Canteen for the rest of the afternoon and was returned to the Museum this morning (Tue).
Details of these lectures is in the video, below, and also on our Events page

Brisbane History Expo - Thursday 19 Nov 2015
On Thursday 19 Nov 2015 we mounted a display at City Hall with a number of other Brisbane Heritage museums. Pic on the left shows the display. While not a huge number of visitors there was considerable interest shown in our Museum with a number of people suggesting that they would visit Chermside.
The display panels used are the printers proof panels from the First Ashore Display, just the right size for this sort of activity.
[right] Setting up in the morning, you can just make out Peter Newland,
Frank Meoni, Brad Shillig
and just a small part of Phill Hill's hand.
