Of love and war
Love touches us all. During times of conflict it has played, and continues to play, an important role in the lives of our servicemen and women, the sweethearts and lovers they left behind or those they met while serving.

The photographs in this set are all from the collection at the Australian War Memorial, and many feature in the Memorial's travelling exhibition Of love and war, which looks at the impact of war on relationships and the ways in which Australians incorporated affairs of the heart into their wartime lives.
