Australian Ex-Prisoner of War Memorial Ballarat

A small project that I took on of my own accord was to create a 3D Virtual Tour of the Ex-Prisoner of War Memorial in Ballarat.
I completed this project for a number of reasons. But the main reason was to give people not just from Australia, but the around world who can’t get to Ballarat the ability to view the memorial in all of its reverence and humility.


I dedicate this 3D Virtual Tour in loving memory of my Grandfather, Ernest Frederick (Ernie) Salter.

Service Number: VX148652.
Service Period: 17 Apr 1944 – 14 Oct 1946.
Born in 02 September 1924 in Redan, and passed away suddenly on 03 May 1982 at age 57.

Lest We Forget.

The Australian Ex-Prisoners of War Memorial Trustees have utilized the talents of Jolt Media who have provided our Memorial Virtual Tour.

This Virtual Tour was provided free of charge and dedicated to the Memory of  VX148652 Sapper Ernie Salter.

The Trustees value this important work as an Education Tool and as a Visual Acknowledgement to those 36,400 Ex-Prisoners of War whose names are engraved on the Memorial.

Our grateful thanks to Matt and his team
