Philip Powell

"My experience and learnings from researching military records and history."

Philip Powell commenced researching military service records in 2011.  As a result of this work he has written several books and pamphlets on his research of men and women who served both in WWI and WWII.
He has given presentations at the Shrine of Remembrance and the AWM Canberra, and visited many CWGC cemeteries and memorials in Europe, UK, Middle East, Asia. PNG and Australia.

Philip will relate his research story and process and will share in some of his findings; including a unique and forgotten collection at the AWM, Canberra.
