Over 100 community members attended the World War I photographic exhibition launch that captured the experience of Australian soldiers at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre recently.
The free exhibition will run to April 29, displaying the photographs of Sir Charles Ryan, an Australian surgeon and army officer who captured images of mateship, stoicism and the dogged persistence that became the spirit of Anzac.
MPAC art gallery and marketing coordinator Helena Satonick said a number of local veterans attended the event.
This display has been developed by the Australian War Memorial with the support of the Australian Government’s Commemorations Program.
Mandurah Performing Arts Centre will also be bringing The Lighthouse Girl to the Boardwalk Theatre on April 24/
As a way to honour our veterans, there will be an allocation of free tickets for ex service-men and women.
