  1. 19th century convict jacket
    1855 - 1880

    Individual

    For convicts transported to the colonies of Australia, inadequate and inappropriate clothing was just one of the many hardships to be endured. Convicts were issued with prison clothing such as this jacket, often of the coarse, ready-made, loose fitting variety known as 'slops'. This clothing was impractical for the Australian climate and uncomfortable since the woollen fabric was coarse and cheap. These clothes were intended to humiliate convicts and this was part of the punishment. The parti colouring meant that ... more

  4. Privy Councillor's uniform of Joseph Cook, Prime Minister
    1914

    Parramatta Heritage Centre

    This uniform and insignia are historically significant because they are a wonderful example of quite a rare and important costume in early Australian culture. The insignia is especially rare, as the number presented every year are limited and recipients after 1948 have to return the insignia to the British Crown upon their deaths. The fact that the uniform belongs to Joseph Cook also makes it significant. Cook was voted in as the MP for Hartley in the New South Wales ... more

  11. John Wardrobe's pith sun helmet
    1889 - 1901

    The Oaks Historical Society

    The sun helmet is in its original condition and made from materials currently in use in India in the late 19th century.

It is therefore a rare example of colonial headgear used in wartime.
