    Panel Display: War at Sea the Navy in WWI

    A graphic panel display based on the major touring exhibition War at Sea is available for bookings. The display has been shown in RSL Clubs, museums, libraries and visitor centres and is provided free of charge to your venue.

    It highlights the contribution the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) made in the ‘war to end all wars’, less widely known than those of the soldiers at Gallipoli and the Western Front.

    You may choose to screen the banner display for a weekend or for up to three months. ANMM will provide marketing materials, an education pack and copies of five films, which can be screened at your venue. It is easy to set up, and easy to take down. It includes eight 2 x1.5 metre banners.
