Gallipoli Album, May 1915
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:

To the OC

Could you give me any information about my son 1092 Pte AE Campbell he was wounded on the 25th . 4 . 15 and returned ill. he left Sydney for Melbourne last december and was to have left for the front again. all his letters were favourable and he seemed anxious to return the last letter I had from him was in may saying he was about to sail. I sent him money + a parcel. Since then I have heard nothing of him. I received a letter from Melbourne saying he had deserted I cannot think he has done so as I know he had no thought of such an act when he was home I often think something may have happedned to him as he always wrote to me I feel very anxious about him he has two brother at the front also. He may have reported at one of the Camps.
Trusting to hear from you soon.

I am yours faithfully
Mrs C Campbell
