2024 DVA calendar: Weather in war
For as long as humans have been embarking on military operations, the weather has played a part in determining the timing and outcome of battles and campaigns. From storms at sea to ice floes and tropical heat, towering clouds full of menace for airmen to clear blue skies, muddy trenches to desert sand, Australian service men and women have experienced the weather's full fury and seen its astonishing beauty through wars, peacekeeping and humanitarian operations since the colonial era. Sometimes weather has been an ally, sometimes it has been a foe; often it is a discomfort to be endured. Benign or full of fury, understanding the weather has always been central to military endeavour.
Richly illustrated with images from the collection of the Australian War Memorial and the Department of Defence, this new 12-month calendar for 2022 is the ideal planning tool for the home or office. The calendar lists national public holidays, DVA pension days, and official days of commemoration proclaimed by the Governor-General of Australia.
