Fewtrell, Terry: War Memorial needs a new Act, not a new building

War Memorial needs a new Act, not a new building’, Canberra Times, 5 December 2019

For an institution with the title “Australian War Memorial”, it is incomprehensible, and ultimately indefensible, for it not to recognise and commemorate the Frontier Wars.

The article expands on this claim and also looks at how the Memorial has pursued what it sees as its mission.

Honest History has had a somewhat different take on these issues. On the first, see this piece and the links therefrom. On the second, see the Heritage Guardians submission on the War Memorial’s EPBC Act Referral, paras 40-44.
