ANZAC MEMORIES

Our First Story: Geelong’s Ernest Brough

 

SUPPORT OUR PROJECT DISMISS MESSAGE

Connecting Geelong’s Generations

Geelong, Victoria’s second largest city, was instrumental in providing large numbers of soldiers to serve in World War II. 

Here, some of Geelong’s finest ANZACs are immortalised in film and war diary audio recordings recounting these diggers’ remarkable and moving World War II stories. 

Stemming from the amazing response to Ernest Brough’s mini documentary, the Geelong RSL is committed to capturing and preserving as many of Geelong’s ANZAC stories as possible before time runs out.

These diggers’ accounts keep Geelong’s ANZAC’s memories alive, accessible and in safe-keeping for Geelong residents and beyond; now and for future generations.

Stories of Humanity, Courage and Hope

 

SUPPORT THE PROJECT NOW DISMISS MESSAGE

"My trip to Gallipoli and the Western Front helped shape me as a person, walking in the footsteps of our ANZACs. As I stood at the exact point of where my great grandfather, John Patrick and his battalion fought at Pozieres 100 years ago, I felt the presence of a man I never knew. I felt a connection that transcends generations, and a longing to have heard my Grandfather and my Great Grandfathers stories firsthand."

"I wished I had heard my grandfather’s story"
- Jasmine Davis
