War letters from the Australia Post Bicentenary Archive Collection

Leave a comment


The Letters of a Nation project aimed to create a first hand account of Australian life since the beginning of Australia Post. Letters from desks, cupboards and files all over the country were brought together in the interactive timeline and archive for all Australians to enjoy. Over 2000 letters were received covering a broad range of topics significant to the Australian way of life including politics, sport, immigration, romance, environment, technology and the arts.

Letters Archive is an online archive that will preserve all letter submissions and act as a resource tool for generations to come. There are 599 documents in the War categories alone! Postcards and letters from the front line during WWI highlight the poignancy and the tragedy of Australian soldiers and their loved ones during the war.
