ALIFE-long love affair with mil-
itary history has motivated one
Army officer to share his pas-
sion and Australia's military
heritage with a younger generation.
Maj Ged Lagerewskij, who will soon
transition from Army after 18 years of
full-time service, will open the doors to
his military museum in Hobart, in time for
the commencement of the 100th anniver-
sary commemorations of World War I at
the start of 2014.
Based around his considerable
and diverse private collection of mili-
tary antiques and memorabilia, Maj
Lagerewskij said the privately funded
museum would cover Australian military
history from Federation to the present day,
providing a powerful education tool for
"My vision is for students to learn in
class about significant military chapters
such as Gallipoli, the bombing of Darwin,
Long Tan and current conflicts, and then
have the opportunity to reinforce these les-
sons through a visit to my museum," Maj
"Having hosted several school vis-
its and Anzac Day activities during my
18-year Army career, I am always amazed
by just how interested young people are to
know more about service life.
"There is no doubt young people

centrepiece of a "Vietnam to East Timor"
"Having served as an M113 Troop
Leader in East Timor in 2002, I have a soft
spot for the old work horse and would love
to be able to display its history to the pub-
lic," Maj Lagerewskij said.
While the project is ambitious and the
amount of work required to open a muse-
um is daunting, Maj Lagerewskij has been
given support and guidance from organisa-
tions such as the Darwin Military Museum
and Army Museum Hobart, which allowed
him to conduct "on the job training".
"Being able to do work at the museums
was part of my medical discharge entitle-
ment, which has set me in good stead,"
Maj Lagerewskij said.
"I've learnt the art and science of
collection management, display arrange-
ment, grant applications and the planning
required to get a museum off the ground."
