How SA Helped Save the Nation: Ammunition Production in SA during WWII
This is a companion event to the morning event, 'The History of the Edinburgh Defence Precinct'. The talk shows how the No. 2 Explosives and Filling Factory, Penfield (now Edinburgh) was an important and integral part of the many factories manufacturing ammunition in South Australia during World War II. A walk around the remaining heritage-listed buildings of TNT Section will be conducted. Between the two events, a BBQ lunch may be available and visitors are encouraged to visit the National Military Vehicle Museum (modest cost) between the two presentations.
