Century of service: Curiosity - Stories of those who report during wartime
In the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial there are 15 stained-glass windows. Each shows a figure dressed in military uniform, and under each figure is a word which describes a quality displayed by Australians during wartime.
One window features an infantryman wearing a trench mortar uniform. He represents all service men and women who have gained knowledge from enquiry, symbolised by an eye in the Egyptian style from which stream rays of light.
This window bears the word Curiosity.
