In November 2018, we commemorate the Centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War. UWA was a new University that had only started teaching the year before hostilities erupted on 28 July 1914.
During August, the University Archives will be displaying in the Reid Library material from the collection that depicts the involvement and impact of both world wars on the University.
Be inspired by the history of UWA individuals and learn how UWA staff, Convocation, students and the community contributed to the international war efforts through the stories of the bogus Bugle, the death of the University’s first Registrar in Gallipoli , the housing of US Navy personnel on campus and the Flying Catalina’s during WWII.
