It has been Australian policy since 1922 to extend official commemoration to eligible post-war deaths. There are more than 300,000 official post-war commemorations at cemeteries, crematoria and Gardens of Remembrance in Australia.
During Australia’s longest operational commitment 521 Australians lost their lives and the majority of these were repatriated to Australia for burial and commemoration.
