Thomas Burstow Diary Recognised as Nationally Significant
A fascinating item in the Northern Territory Library collection is a unique handwritten diary by Thomas Burstow. The diary begins with the first Japanese bombing raid over Darwin on 19 February 1942 and continues up until 26 March 1942.
The diary is preserved in optimal conditions at NTL, with a high-resolution digital copy available online for ease of viewing and to protect the delicate original.
The national significance of the Burstow Diary was recognised on 14 May 2013, when it was officially accepted into the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Australian Memory of the World registry.
