About the Society

The Military History Society of WA Inc. was formed in 2003 as a not-for-profit organisation. The Society is a group of professional and amateur historians and people with an interest in military history. The fundamental mission of the Society is the preservation and promotion of public awareness and interest in military history with an emphasis on the military history of Australia.

The Society meets on the third Tuesday of each month. All are welcome and attendance is free. Following a brief discussion of Society business, a guest speaker presents a talk on a military history subject. The topic of these talks cover specific military events as well as military theory from medieval times to the present day. Following the talk, supper is served. After supper, a raffle is drawn and a quiz rounds out the meeting.
