75th Anniversary of Templers in Australia

When a small group of dedicated volunteers began getting the Archives back into shape nearly a year ago, unseen pieces of Templer history passed through their hands. With the 75th anniversary of Templers in Australia coming up, they decided to dust off these precious memories and commemorate thisĀ 75-year-journey. The result is this historic booklet with images and memories from some of the first Templers to arrive in Australia.
