Exhibition: Public Service / War Service

More than 11,000 New South Wales government employees volunteered for military service overseas during World War I - many gave their lives for their country.

Others fulfilled essential services at home, and government departments were transformed to perform wartime roles.

The exhibition presents stories from the lives of NSW railway and harbour workers, teachers, administrators, printers, nurses, clerks, draftsmen, politicians and police - stories of public service and war service, pieced together through research at the State archives.
