Colonial Forces Study Group (Qld)

Queensland Military History: 1860-1901

 
Treasuring Your Heritage

If you have any items pertaining to Queensland’s colonial forces, we would like to record them for posterity.

The colonial forces that defended Queensland are now long gone. We know of a few surviving buildings and structures used by the defence forces, some weapons, uniforms and accoutrements, books, diaries, letters and other personal mementos. Most of these artefacts are in the hands of descendants, private collections, or in specialist museum collections.

Part of the aims of the CFSG is to document and photographically record any item of our military heritage that comes to light. We use a museum quality recording system to preserve knowledge of these artefacts. The CFSG(Q) is not a collecting organisation, though we can direct you to appropriate museums if you wish to dispose of items. Images of these items may be displayed in our publications, on our website or within our Library resources. Full confidentiality or acknowledgement can be given as require.
