Welcome to the Military History Society of NSW

This website has been created for Society members, as well as all persons who have an interest in the military history and heritage of New South Wales, Australia and the globe from ancient to modern times.

 

Since 1968 we have been the leading forum for the discussion of general military history and heritage in Sydney and New South Wales. We offer monthly lectures by interesting experts, a quarterly magazine presenting original content, social media sites, and group visits to places of historical significance.

 

Membership is open to all persons interested in military history, and all facets of military collecting and modelling, irrespective of their place of residence.
