National Archives exposes the ongoing impact of war For many Anzacs, the horrors of war didn't end when they returned home. Ongoing health problems 鈥?both physical and mental 鈥?often meant unemployment, disability, pain and, if things became unbearable, suicide.

The intimate details of such difficulties are preserved in more than 600,000 World War I repatriation records, held by the National Archives of Australia.

They document the medical care, welfare services and pensions provided by the Repatriation Department 鈥?now known as the Department of Veterans' Affairs. Very few of the files have been viewed since their official use.

War brides: where there is war there is love During World War I, more than 13,000 Australian soldiers married while overseas on service.

Most of their new wives were English women the diggers met while on leave, while training or while in hospital. Some men also married French or Belgium women. Some took it to excess; one Australian man was found to have married eight times during the war.

Greg Cope, from the National Archives' Brisbane office, has found a treasure trove of information on war brides and will share his findings in two public talks on Wednesday 17 June and Friday 19 June.
