Queensland State Archives (QSA) has released a new index to help researchers with finding digitised
First World War records in our collection. This index is available on the Queensland Government data
website and covers digitised records added to our Image Queensland catalogue up to 16 February 2015.
These digitised records relate to the outbreak of First World War (1914-1918) and the ensuing years,
including post-war settlement and commemoration activities. The index is not a complete list of all First
World War records held by QSA.
While this information was already available in Image Queensland, making the data available in this
form makes it easier for researchers to search and browse the full selection of digitised First World War

it's christening by Princess Alexandra in Scotland in 1968 to its decommissioning and plans to make
a historical tourist attraction in 2008. Go all the way up to the recent announcement of the
National Ice Taskforce.
