Tony Robinson's Tour of Duty


For the first time, experience the Tour of Duty roadshow and feel part of the community as Tony encourages the locals to show off memorabilia, tell stories and share poignant recollections of their ancestors who fought the war at home and abroad.
Focusing on the last century of war and war service in Australia – on the battlefield, and on the home front, Tony digs deep through the trenches in the towns and cities he visits making the locals the stars of the show.


The last stop on Tony’s Tour of Duty is the Western Front…the Australian city of Fremantle. 
Tony meets the grandson of an unlikely celebrity, the word ‘Anzac’ takes on a number of fascinating meanings, and Tony shares a beer with the son of an Australian war bride and American GI, whose extraordinary love story spans six decades and seven seas. 
At the Community Roadshow, a massive crowd of locals joins Tony at the Army Museum of Western Australia, causing panic among the hot dog sellers. A rare newspaper, long lost mementos and not just a Victorian Cross, but a Victoria Cross winner as well.
This is a Roadshow not to be missed.
