A Dark Red Rose: Update

Barnaby Joyce recently visited our museum with the support of a recent grant from the Australian Government for the new exhibition “A Dark Red Rose” which tells the story of WW1 soldier Cecil Stoker from Uralla.

You can view the clip on our face book page:

Uralla boy Cecil Stoker was only 18 years old when he was killed in France during WWI, just three weeks after arriving on the Western Front. Nearly a century later, a trunk containing Cecil’s personal possessions was discovered hidden in a building due to be demolished. It forms the centrepiece of an exhibition on Cecil’s story, funded by the Australian Government, coming up at Uralla’s McCrossin’s Mill Museum
