    The military plan for the protection of Australia during WWII emphasised that the Industries of Newcastle had to be defended at all cost.

    The next milestone of the Fortress Newcastle Project, a 53min film by Glenn and Tony from 'Stories of Our Town' fame, Fortress Newcastle - Life Under Threat', has now been launched at Fort Scratchley.

    The film its available for free viewing on Youtube. See it at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOcpA...amp;t=995s

    A major exhibition of all the details of the FORTRESS Story will be launched at Fort Scratchley on Anzac Day 2022. Details soon.

    Fortress Newcastle video Production is progressing rapidly.
    A documentary of the important role that Newcastle industries served in production for the war effort, is being told by those who lived through it. We are interviewing everyone we can find who lived in Newcastle during WWII.
    Please contact NIHA if you know anyone that could contribute to this production.

    The initial production involves video recording interviews, which will form the storyline of this important documentary. Approximately 20 interviews are expected to be conducted.
    Many of the 17 persons interviewed so far are over 90 years old.
    Research is almost completed for the exhibition and website components of the project. We will be advising launch date soon, for a large exhibition to be held early in 2022.

    NIHA was pleased to be invited to mount an exhibition over the long weekend at the STEAM open days held by Richmond Vale Railway.
    Four of our members talked to hundreds of visitors about our projects. The railway items at Richmond Vale from Lysaghts and Newcastle Steelworks were featured in our exhibition.
    Our important Fortress Newcastle Project was also featured.
    Our friends at William the Fourth were also featured. This was a great example of all of our groups working together to support each other.

    Continuing our research into the elements of Fortress Newcastle, members of several groups inspected the LARGS-PATERSON Artillery Range at Tocal.
    The massive concrete Observation Post looked out over the range where artillery testing and training took place.
    Under the expert guidance of historian Cameron Archer, we also studied the Tocal Agricultural Centre's collection of remnant munitions.
