  • Turkish Gallipoli commander Kemal Ataturk�s Tribute to the ANZACS as a message of reconciliation and tolerance.
  • Piper D McCall sealed a letter in a bottle assuring his mother of his safety, and threw it overboard. Miraculously, it washed up on shore in WA and was posted to his mother in Northcote!
  • Westgarth nurse Edith Cornwall, was the first nurse to receive the Florence Nightingale award for her services. Women are often omitted from memorials because they were volunteers
  • The Spanish Flu pandemic, brought to Australia by returning soldiers, had a huge impact on communities recovering from the war. Local schools were closed and converted into temporary hospitals.

The Unsung Heroes project also has a special schools program which can be tailored to a number of themes, and is supported by free on-line study guides.

If you would like to organise a performance of ‘Unsung Heroes of Australian History’ at your school, club, theatre, festival or other venue we would be delighted to hear from you.

"I loved the performance last night - it was brilliant! It operated on so many different levels - there were some amusing moments as well as many highly moving and thought provoking moments along with the wonderful music, lyrics, informative stories AND Anzac biscuits and Turkish Delights (great touch)! Plus always that personable engagement with the audience. The length of the applause showed how much we all loved the show! "

There is kindness and courage in almost everyone. We can�t all be Warnies or Kylies or Clarkies or Blanchetts.
We can all be loyal and truthful and hardworking and brave - and most of us are much of the time.
When we are dust and ashes, what traces will we leave...
