MSR Chapter given the rare privilege of viewing of the Men From Snowy River Flag
MSR Chapter were on the 22-04-2021 given the rare privilege of attending a private viewing of the Men From Snowy River Flag held at the Mitchell Archives of the Australian War Memorial. We were escorted by the head Curator of Collections and given a talk by one of the fabric conservators on the preservation efforts for the flag.

An awesome day and a great piece of our military history. This flag has not been on display at the AWM since 2010. Prior to that is has been on continuous display since the Delegate Community donated it to the War Memorial in 1988.
