The Spirit of Anzac Centenary exhibition has captured hearts and minds in its one-week stay in Orange.

As well as feast of information and personal stories, guests were given an iPod which shared a narration, guiding people through the exhibit.

It was a handy addition, but one which didn’t always go to plan.

There were some confused faces as people listened to words explaining the Western Front, but if they took two steps to the left the narration automatically switched to information about the 1st Light Horse Brigade.

There were more than few visitors trying to find the ‘sweet spot’ so they could listen to an entire narration on what they were seeing.
