Wanneroo Remembers: The Centenary of Armistice Exhibition

This exhibition honours those men that went to war and the loved ones who waited for them.

Opening hours

Monday to Saturday // 10:00am to 4:00pm

Between 1914 and 1918, 23 members of the Wanneroo community served in the ‘War to End All Wars’. In the 100th anniversary year of the end of the global conflict that scarred the beginning of the 20th century, we remember those who served. Some lost their lives, some returned to home and family forever changed by the experience. This exhibition honours those men that went to war and the loved ones who waited for them. 

They include James Dunn Bennett who lost his life in 1915 at Gallipoli on what came to be known as Anzac Day, and Richard William Bettles who was a captured in France in April 1917 and interned as a Prisoner of War at Limburg, Germany until he was repatriated in January 1919. 

Join us for a talk with archaeologist and author Sue Carter on Thursday 25 October 6pm-8pm with her talk: The Archaeology of the Somme. Sue takes you on a journey in the footsteps of one Battalion’s struggle during the Battle of The Somme in 1916. This is a free event, but booking is essential.
