Informing the Enemy

January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am

3,848 Australians were captured by the Germans during the First World War. Instead of dwelling on the personal, subjective nature of captivity, this talk looks at the value of Australian prisoners as intelligence sources for the German Army. Hear about German interrogation methods, AIF counter-intelligence training and the experiences of Australian prisoners, including the stories of two Australian soldiers who willingly disclosed information about the AIF and its operations.
Presenter: Aaron Pegram, Australian War Memorial.

Cost: Free, gold coin donation welcome.

Wednesday 21 August- 5.30pm arrival for 6pm start.

Light refreshments served between 5.30pm and 6pm. Talks begin promptly at 6pm.
