Fifty-years of the Special Air Service Regiment in art and artefacts.

Out of the Shadows is an exclusive glimpse into the secret world of Australia’s Special Air Service Regiment, marking the Golden Jubilee of the Regiment’s formation in 1964.

From the jungles of Borneo and Vietnam, to counter-terrorism, to peacekeeping in Rwanda, Somalia and Timor, to the present day war on terror in Afghanistan, this exhibition uses art and artefacts to portray the reality behind the SASR motto, “Who dares wins”.
