The Australian War Memorial is an Australian national institution that combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive.
The Memorial commemorates the sacrifice of Australians who have suffered and died in war.
At the heart of the Memorial is a long series of panels recording the names of Australia's over 102,000 war dead. This is known as the Roll of Honour.
The Commemorative Roll records the names of Australians who died while members of allied forces, the merchant navy, philanthropic organisations, as war correspondents, artists or photographers, and certain munition and other workers.
The Remembrance Book commemorates members of the Australian Defence Force who have died on operations after 30 June 1947 designated as non-warlike service, and its equivalent, including hazardous, peacekeeping, and humanitarian peacetime service.
