Websites share state's history

IPSWICH residents interested in the state's wartime history are invited to take advantage of the government's two interactive websites.

In the lead-up to Anzac Day, Housing and Public Works Minister Bruce Flegg said the Queensland War Memorial Register and the Queensland World War II Historic Places websites were valuable resources for those wishing to know more about the state's involvement in international conflicts.

Dr Flegg said that as Australians reflected on those who served, and on those who made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives, it was important to remember how Queensland played its part, and how the state has honoured those who fell.

"Each year, the Anzac Day Commemoration Committee conducts ceremonies in every town in Queensland in commemoration of our fallen and the acknowledgment of the suffering of our wounded," he said. "In addition, the government's online Queensland War Memorial Register records the sites that are sacred to the memory of those that served.

"It is designed to provide information for families, researchers and historians and to assist present and future generations to understand how the dedication and courage of Australia's youth created a spirit and national identity for our country."

Dr Flegg said the other valuable resource was the award-winning Queensland World War II Historical Places website.

"This site allows users to discover the places across Queensland that had military significance or supported the war effort, during World War II."

 

The websites can be viewed at www.qldwarmemorials.com.au and www.ww2places.qld.gov.au.
