Preserving war heritage and memorabilia fact sheets

The Veterans Unit in partnership with Heritage Victoria has developed a new suite of Preserving war heritage and memorabilia fact sheets. They are designed for volunteers in RSLs, ex-service organisations, community museums and historical societies. They contain practical and easy-to-understand information about preserving many different types of heritage commonly found in local communities across Victoria.

There are 15 fact sheets to download:
   General principles
   War memorials
   Avenues of honour and botanical features
   Honour rolls
   Medals and medallions
   Paper and books
   Uniforms, costume and textiles
   Wooden objects
   Metal objects
   Antique and heritage munitions
   Outdoor heritage (tanks, cannon)
   Useful resources and contacts
   Finding the right conservator, tradespeople and materials
   Donating war-related heritage
