HONOURING WOMEN UNITED BY DEFENCE SERVICE 2018

In September 2018, a centenary of service and sacrifice by women and families in the defence of the nation was commemorated. From the first deployment of women to the Boer War, through to the crucial home-front support provided by widows, spouses, parents and children, Honouring Women United by Defence Service recognises and reflects on the contribution of women over the last 100 years. We honoured:

  • Women who are widowed as a result of their partner’s service
  • Women who are currently serving in the Australian Defence Force
  • Women who are ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force
  • Women and their families whose lives have been affected as a result of service. This includes mothers, sisters and children.
