'Personalised War Histories & Personalised Battlefield Tours' is an integrated service designed to provide you with:

-  deeply researched information about your service person's wartime experiences

       and / or

 -  access to the highest quality and most cost effective tours of the world's battlefields.



Personalised War Histories' is a research service which provides information, understanding and a deeper insight into the participation of Australians in War - ordinary Australians whose response for their country was extraordinary. 

The service is an excellent resource for the enquirer who wants to solve some long standing mystery or area of intrigue, for the traveller preparing for a battlefield tour following their family member's footsteps, or the typical family whose curiosity is high because their service person simply "didn't talk about the war".   

Major areas of research include the participation of Australian forces in the First World War and the Second World War.  Other projects may relate to the service of Australians in the Boer War, the Korean War, Vietnam and other conflicts.


The research service is offered to a wide range of customers including individuals, families, schools and corporate clients and is available to enquirers located in any country.
