Prior to 1988, this consisted of in-service hospital courses in institutions across Victoria - thereafter the scholarship has been hosted in conjunction with Curtin University of Technology, Perth. http://www.aifredcross.com.au/a-living-memorial/ See also: Correspondence Files, National Headquarters (2015.0033) Researchers should note that under the Geneva Conventions Act 1957 protections govern the use of the Red Cross emblem.
