Berowra At War is an exhibition which acknowledges the role which Berowra residents, young and old, played during times of conflict. The exhibition focuses on activities of local people and the people who came into the community during these times. Although many sons, brothers and husbands from Berowra served overseas, the exhibition also focuses on activities and incidents which happened closer to home. Some are humorous, some reflect experiences which many would have shared, and some are local tragedies, but they are all events which helped to shape the history of Berowra At War.
The exhibition is still under development, so check back to see what we have added! Of course, if you have a story you would like to add, we’d also love to hear from you.
