You are cordially to the launch of Chinese ANZACs exhibition.

When war was declared, Australia issued a call to arms. The Chinese-Australian community rallied behind the war effort. Around two hundred Australians of Chinese descent enlisted. Of these, nineteen received a total of twenty-three gallantry awards. Of those who fought, around forty died.

The launch of the exhibition will be held at the Chinese Museum Level 1 (22 Cohen Place) on Wednesday 16 July, 6 pm. It will be opened by Mr Chin Tan, Chairman of the Victorian Multicultural Commission.

Please RSVP to marketing@chinesemuseum.com.au for catering purposes before 9 July 2014.
