An initiative to celebrate the efforts of indigenous diggers is being supported by Linfox. The company says it is proudly supporting a nationwide Shrine of Remembrance exhibition to celebrate the service of Indigenous Australians in the armed forces. The travelling exhibition, Indigenous Australians at War: from the Boer War to the present, will tour nationally from 2015 to 2017, with stories told through the exhibition drawn from all over Australia.
“Indigenous Australians have served Australia in all major conflicts from the Boer War to the present,” said Jean McAuslan, Director of Exhibitions and Collections at the Shrine of Remembrance. “This important exhibition uncovers the individual and family stories of service and sacrifice of the First Australians.
“The Shrine Trustees gratefully acknowledge the generous contribution of Linfox in enabling this exhibition to tour nationally.”
Linfox President Linehaul, Mark Mazurek said Linfox will use road, rail and sea to carefully transport the exhibition around the 15 locations it will travel to across Australia.
“The exhibition opened in Tasmania in January and will travel throughout Australia, from Yulara in the Northern Territory to Moreton Bay in Queensland and back again,” said Mazurek. “Linfox is proud to help the Shrine of Remembrance celebrate the bravery of Indigenous Australians in the armed forces.”
