The Temora Aviation Museum’s Unsung Heroes Project is a significant initiative to record the personal stories of the men and women who served in the defence of Australia from the Second World War to the present day. Unsung Heroes is a biographical database which includes information about individual men and women who, although not given recognition in the history books, have been vital to the pioneering spirit of Australia’s military aviation heritage. These men and women came from all walks of life and backgrounds and were not necessarily pilots or engineers.
To date, more than 500 interviews have been recorded, a number which is consistently increasing. In addition to recording interviews, we are also seeking memorabilia associated with these individuals and their stories in the form of photographs, logbooks, uniforms, ephemera, and aircraft parts.
