INQUIRY: Question about exhibitions at the Australian War Memorial

H-ANZAU readers,

can anyone tell me if the issue of military brothels/ military prostitution has ever been explicitly addressed in any official exhibitions at the Australian War Memorial?

I know that there are extensive resooures on this issue in the AWM collections, but wonder whether it has appeared in exhibitions.

Thanks for any information or suggestions you can provide.

Best wishes,

Vera Mackie
