Many of the documents and photos in this Digital Library have been generously shared by private families. The originals remain with the families and we create a high resolution digital image to put online. The clarity of the image reflects the condition of the original as we are unable to carry out any cleaning or preservation of the item before digitising. Our policy is to digitise entire documents without editing or censoring the contents.
Most of the people represented on these pages served with a Western Australian battalion or unit. However, many people served in the Military in other countries and then migrated to Australia. Their stories are an important part of the history of Western Australia and their service records are a valuable addition to the Digital Library.
You can help us build this collection. If you have family documents that have a military connection we would love to digitise them for you and include them on this website. Please contact us on [email protected] and your inquiry will be answered by our volunteers as soon as possible.
