CENTENARY TODAY: To the Western Front 1916 Collection

This landmark collection remembers 1916 and Australian forces in the Battle of the Somme for the Western Front in France and Belgium. In July and August Australia commemorates the battles of Pozieres and Fromelles, where our force endured almost as many losses in a matter of days as were suffered during the entire Gallipoli Campaign. By year's end some 40,000 Australians had been killed or wounded in these European trenches.

Today more communities have a family connection to the Western Front than any other theatre of the Great War. Share their story.

Great War Commemorative Pennies

Replica Female Relatives Badges

These faithfully reproduced Female Relative Badges are a must for all collectors and of great interest to those with a family link to the Great War or the Second World War.

The badges were first issued during the Great War when the Australian Government established special badges for issue to the nearest female relative of a member of the Australian forces on active service. Separate badges were issued to signify relatives serving in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) and the Australian Imperial Force (AIF). The badge reads “ISSUED BY THE DEPT OF DEFENCE. TO WOMEN OF AUSTRALIA. FOR DUTY DONE”.

During the Second World War a single all-services badge was issued and included relatives of those serving in the Merchant Navy. This badge reads simply “TO THE WOMEN OF AUSTRALIA”.

The badges, worn proudly by mothers, sisters and wives of those serving, were not automatically issued but had to be applied for through the local post office.

Each reproduction with chain and clasp is housed in an acrylic display case with a printed sleeve that tells the story of the individual badge.

Great War Two Up Sets

The Western Front 1916 Two-Up Set

Click to order

"Two-Up" is very much a part of Australia's Great War story. The coin-toss betting game was a welcome relief from the realities of life in the trenches. The excitement of two pennies flying, the gathering of mates and new men, and the hope of winning, spirited them away, if just for a moment, from the horrors of war.

Ideal for play on Anzac Day or use the keyhole mount at the back to display.
