This tour of duty took a historically significant turn in 1899, when approximately 500 Buffalo Soldiers departed from the Presidio along the still bridge-less Golden Gate in San Francisco, and rode around the Bay, through the Central Valley and up into the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains. Their destination was Yosemite, a prized assignment which was considered within the ranks to be the "Cavalryman's Paradise." Once there, the Buffalo Soldiers were tasked to protect Yosemite (and nearby Sequoia National Park) from a variety of threats "” poaching of wildlife, illegal logging and destructive livestock grazing to name a few "” not to mention the building of infrastructure which included roads and trails that are still in use today."
  8. From the Australian War Memorial FB page This might seem like an ordinary button, but it has a magnet tucked inside the black Bakelite. What’s so significant about that hidden magnet? It turns this simple button into a compass that you can hide in plain sight. Balance the button on its curved eyelet base and it will rotate until its two carved dots are pointing north. Escape compasses hidden in buttons and other innocent looking items were widely produced during the Second World War. Sister Sylvia Muir collected this example during her time as a Prisoner of War in Sumatra and Banka Island. Accession number: REL35610 #objectoftheweek #AWMobjects #myawm #AWMemorial
