Nerves and Steel

The Royal Australian Navy in the Pacific December 1941 – September 1945
The war in the Pacific was essentially a naval struggle. Allied war aims hinged on the destruction of Japan’s powerful navy and the severing of sea communications between Japan and its far-flung Asian and Pacific conquests. Nerves and Steel explores the role played by the RAN in ultimate Allied victory and features items from the Shrine’s own collection as well as loans from the Australian War Memorial, the RAN Heritage Collection, veterans and their families.
The exhibition will be on display in the Shrine of Remembrance Southern Gallery.

Next Flagship event:
Battle of Bita Paka - Tuesday 11th September - wreath laying in the Sanctuary.
