Gallipoli Album, May 1915
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.

For a comprehensive listing of photographs in the album, see:

Our picture shows a number of men of the Northern Territory who have volunteered for the front. It was taken at the residence of the Administrator, where they were entertained on the eve of their departure. Included in the group are Colonel Gilruth (Administrator), who is on the extreme left, and, beside him, Major Bevan (Chief Justice). The officer commanding the contingent is Captain Lewis (on the right of the picture.)
