Bean's Corona 3 Portable Typewriter and the Bapaume Explosion

Australian soldiers clear debris after the explosion in the Town Hall in Bapaume on the night of 25-26 March 1917.
On a visit to Canberra today by Melbourne typewriter collector Diane Jones, we went to see the enlarged World War I sections of the Australian War Memorial. I was delighted to find that official war correspondent and war historian Charles Bean's Corona 3 portable typewriter is back on display, although now sans its tripod.
