Gallipoli Album, May 1915
Leaders who died at the Dardanelles
Welcome to the Gallipoli Album, May 1915.
As casualties lists from the Gallipoli Campaign became known in Australia from early May 1915, it became a practice to publish a photograph of individuals. These photographs were supplied by the families of the person on the casualty list. There were few photographs published in relation to the number of casualties listed. To give the extent of the human tragedy that unfolded, the photographs were extracted from the various newspapers and placed in this album. Each photograph is clearly identified to an individual and brief details are given as a short biography.
The evolving photograph album of the Australian Roll of Honour at Gallipoli is now available on the Australian Light Horse Studies Centre Site at:
