Some new titles just received in the libraries are ‘Memoirs of an Anzac’ by John C. Barrie which is a first-hand account by an AIF officer in WW1, and ‘Bearing Witness’ by Peter Rees about the life of C.E.W. Bean.

DVDs to look out for at the libraries are ‘Gallipoli Pilgrimage’, ‘ANZAC: Australians at War in World War Two’, ‘Gallipoli: Untold Stories’, and ‘Gallipoli’ directed by Peter Weir.
