Greetings from Czechs and Slovaks in Brodie Helmets, an exhibition at the ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences. The Slovak Ambassador pointed out that with the situation in Ukraine today it is important to learn from history.
Also mentioned was that the EU had a Pacific Strategy. Given events in the Solomon Islands, perhaps Australia should be exploring this more.
The exhibition had a personal relevance, as my father was a member of the Australian 2/15th Battalion.
