Relive life in an old army war camp

IPSWICH residents can discover life in an old army war camp as The Workshops Rail Museum grounds are transformed for the Ipswich Salutes event today.

Based on the First and Second World Wars, period re-enactments will give families a glimpse of life for men and women during the time of conflict, thanks to Standard Bearers Military Re-enactment and Modelling Association, and The Emu Valley Field Volunteers.

Visitors will enjoy fly overs by Tigermoth and Waco biplanes and Trojan aircraft.

Queensland Museum Network CEO Professor Suzanne Miller said the event would set the tone for visitors when they stepped into the new exhibition Railways 1914-1918.

"The impact on the railways in the First World War is a little known story and we're expecting visitors to have a new appreciation of its contribution through this beautifully presented exhibition which includes stories of Workshops workers who went to war."
