LTGEN Burr said that over the past 100 years the Australian Army has had a deep and diverse history, and he believes its collection and preservation is an integral part of the nation’s heritage.

The Army History Research Grants Scheme is a competitive program that contributes funding to projects that significantly contribute to Australia’s military history narrative by addressing military strategy and operations, military social history and military heritage.

“The scheme provides an excellent opportunity for the Australian Army to keep learning from lessons of the past to influence our future,” LTGEN Burr said.

“The projects supported this year range from a comparison study of combat effectiveness of an Australian and New Zealand Division in the Western Desert of Egypt during the Second World War, to a study of Australian railway units and how they contributed to victory in the First World War.”

The grants demonstrate the government’s continued support and recognition of the service and sacrifice of all Australian service men and women, past and present.
