Everyday Life in Wartime NSWHighlights from the State archives
Evidence of everyday life and experiences in New South Wales during WWI can be found in State Archives. Examples from the war time period are most commonly located in correspondence records, such as those of the Chief Secretary’s Main series of letters received (NRS 905) and Premier’s Office Letters received (NRS 12060).
A selection of records, some of which were included in our 2014 exhibition A Call to Arms, are now available to view online. These items are grouped into the following themes:
- Entertainment and recreation
- Holidays, commemorations and celebrations
