Life. Unley's Own Returning Home - opens 9 May 2019

In 2017 the City of Unley and Flinders University embarked on a joint project to find out more about the men from Unley who served in the 27th Battalion in WWI.  Honours student Sandra Kearney took up the challenge and spent a year exploring the lives and experiences of the soldiers of the 27th.  
The result is this exhibition, based on the thesis, Unley's Own - Returning Home.  This intimate exhibition explores the personal stories of 15 soldiers of the 27th Australian Infantry Battalion as they returned home to resume their lives after service on the front during WWI. 
Their stories are told through photographs, objects, service records and anecdotal stories shared by their families.
Join us for the launch of this fascinating exhibition and hear from Sandra Kearney about her journey.

Thursday 9th May, 5-7pm
Unley Museum, 80 Edmund Avenue, Unley
