Experience history with the exceptional 1914 Great War Series 3 Penny Set & Diary pages from Australia's leading military site - Military Shop. In this latest instalment of John Murray's 1914 Memory Penny Diary events overseas finally reach home. When Britain declares war with Germany on 4 August Australia loyally follows. In the weeks following Australians rally to support the Mother Country and John is no exception. The Murray family's attention is on the war.

Albert joins the force to take German territory in New Guinea while Walter's ambitions for officer training at Duntroon takes a war footing with the enrolment cancelled. John and thousands of men converge on Randwick Racecourse for basic training under the newly formed Australian Imperial Forces. The Australian Red Cross is formed and immediately starts raising funds. Lizzie and mother want to do their bit. Father believes the motor car will be a big part of the war effort and gives the boys a lesson in 'hard' driving in the Model T. Includes six especially minted and presented Memory Pennies.
