About The Event

Elizabeth Stacey completed an undergraduate degree in history and taught several years of secondary school history but at no stage studied Australia’s part in either World War (so can claim no expertise as a war historian). However, family stories about her grandfather’s and great uncles’ experiences at the western front inspired her to join the commemoration of the 3rd Battle of Ypres as part of a battlefield tour. This presentation is a visual travelogue describing Elizabeth Stacey’s visit to France and Belgium and she will describe the wartime stories of her grandfather and great uncles that she explored in the context of her tour.
