What's On @ NT Library http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=9bf67354e5d91e378fbf7ddb3&id=43e99362a7&e=[30/05/2013 3:54:57 PM] Thomas Burstow Rough Diary recognised as nationally significant The national significance of a fascinating item in the Northern Territory Library collection was recognised when it was officially accepted into the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Australian Memory of the World registry on 14 May 2013. The Burstow Diary, a unique handwritten diary by Thomas Burstow, begins with the first Japanese bombing raid over Darwin on 19 February 1942 and continues through to 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.
