Touched by Fire Exhibition
September 7, 2014 @ 10:00 - 16:00
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Sunday, repeating until September 14, 2014
What started out as a personal way for Vietnam Veteran, Derek Walsh, to try and come to terms with his experiences during the Vietnam War, has evolved into a massive mural painted in oil on steel panels that chronologically represent Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict. It is more than 12 metres long and 1.5 high.
Five hundred and eight Australians lost their lives during the Vietnam War and each one has their portrait in the mural along with the years they perished and other pieces of history.
The mural, along with an excellent collection of Vietnam War militaria, will be on display at the museum on the 7th and 14th of September.
