Gallipoli: Untold stories from Charles Bean and front-line Anzacs
When: Monday, 24 April 2017 at 7:00 pm
Where: Waverley RSL,161 Coleman Parade Glen Waverley, Melways 71C2
We will enjoy an exciting and formative DVD documentary presentation in the Sunset Room.
The documentary was written by Dr Jonathan King and is narrated by Jack Thomson. It features untold stories from the war correspondent Charles Bean and front line Anzacs. Shot in 1990, through first-hand accounts, contemporary films and photographs, the documentary provides a rare insight into what really happened. It includes rare black and white film footage and photographs, and indeed is an excellent film to view as a prelude to our commemoration of Anzac Day.
“Nothing can alter what happened now; Anzac stood and still stands for reckless valour in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship and endurance that will never admit defeat.”
CHARLES BEAN, Official War Correspondent
