As casualties lists from the Gallipoli Campaign became known in Australia during June 1915. 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.
For a comprehensive listing of photographs in the album, see:

Our golden-voiced diva, whose fame extends throughout the civilised world, and who is to sing at Thursday night's concert, which she has organised in aid of the starving millions of Poland. This will be the great singer's last appearance in Sydney prior to her departure for America.
