Frank Partridge VC Military Museum in Bowraville commemorates Frank John Partridge who was awarded the Victoria Cross in World War Two.
Private Partridge was born in Grafton on 29 November 1924 and he enlisted in the army on 21 December 1942 at Macksville, NSW. He was recommended by the Governor General for the Victoria Cross on 23 October 1945 for conspicuous bravery north of Ratsua on 24 July 1945. The insignia was presented by the Governor-General at Government House, Sydney on 13 April 1946 and he was discharged on 17 October 1946.
The Military Museum was once housed in the Bowraville Folk Museum. It then moved to a building next door to the present building which it occupied in 2002. The museum's website states their mission is: "to honour and preserve the memory of all who have served Australia in conflict, to advance and disseminate knowledge about their feats and to encourage visitors to reflect upon the sacrifices given by each person whilst performing their duty."
