Gallantry Exhibition

Sempahore Music Festival Poster

 

Hosted by the Semaphore Port Adelaide RSL 29th October to 27th November, History SA / Veteran SA’s joint travelling exhibition Gallantry tells the moving stories of the brave actions of five South Australians awarded the Victoria Cross and George Cross in the Second World War and the Vietnam War.

Entry by gold coin donation, it consists of 10 pull-up banners telling the history of both awards, a background to South Australia and World War II and the Vietnam War and the stories of the five recipients: Peter Badcoe VC; Thomas Currie (Diver) Derrick VC; George Gosse GC; William (Bill) Kibby VC; and Lionel Matthews GC.  The framed replica medals and citations of each man are also included.  These come stored in three wooden crates which then double as plinths for their display.

The format follows on from History SA / Veterans SA’s successful travelling display Bravest of the Brave, launched in 2012 and telling the stories of the SA recipients of the Victoria Cross during the First World War.
