Century of service: Resource - Stories of Australian innovation in wartime
In the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra 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 aircraftman. He represents all service men and women who have found creative and bold solutions to difficult problems in wartime.
This window bears the word Resource.
