Queensland Military Memorial Boxes

Assist us in conserving Queensland's Military Heritage. We want to preserve and restore objects to create Memorial Boxes dedicated to Queesland's Defence and Military History from the 1800's to the 21st Century. This will invigorate classroom lessons, inspire anthropological and historical investigation and add value and meaning to education and memorial activities for both children as well as adults. We are wanting to adapt the Memorial Boxes for use as a therapeutic tool in an aged care facilities, as well as to be interactive displays within our community, schools and museum spaces.

Why are we raising funds?

The Queensland Military Memorial Museum works with Queensland's Military Heritage, to conserve, preserve and restore objects and documents from Queensland's military history and defence. We are focused on conserving items relevant to all Queenslanders from the Boer War, World War One and World War Two, the Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, and Afghanistan. Our all-encompassing focus allows us to broadly communicate and inform the community about Queensland's richness and diversity of service involvement and defence over time to the present. We are dedicated to raising awareness, preventing loss of heritage and record, facilitating research, informing the community and providing membership. Our sole mission is to conserve, preserve and restore significant objects and documents of Queensland's Heritage.

Why we are needed?

  • The Heritage of Queensland's Military Defence and History is in great need of conservation
  • In 2015 there were over 3,000 objects in our collection needing conserving and preserving, from, significant documents and personal diaries to books, memorabilia and uniforms.
  • In 2016, there were 700 new objects in our collection needing conserving and restoration, from, significant documents, prints and paintings to uniforms and memorial boards.

What we do to support Queensland's Heritage

The Queensland Military Memorial Museum is committed to:

  • Improving the awareness of Queensland's Military Defence History
  • Increasing understanding of Army Unit Histories, Establishments and Campaign involvements
  • Assist in conserving, preserving and restoring objects and stories from Queensland's Military Heritage in Queensland.
  • Support research in Conservation and Military Science

We fundraise thousands annually to undertake our work - but we do need more to preserve and restore adequately in our environment today. We are an independent organisation and rely solely on voluntary effort and support to meet the needs of conserving Queensland's Military Heritage in Queensland.
