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:

Lest We Forget
Studio portrait of 415 Private (Pte) Richard Alexander Jarman, D Company, 2nd Battalion, of Tamworth, NSW. Pte Jarman enlisted on 17 August 1914 and embarked from Sydney aboard HMAT Suffolk on 18 October 1914. He was wounded at Gallipoli Peninsula and died of wounds received on 29 April 1915, aged 23 years. He died on the Hospital ship Galeka and was buried at sea. He is memorialised at Lone Pine Memorial Gallipoli Peninsula. This lantern slide is one of a series of images of soldiers from the district who enlisted and served overseas. The slides were probably displayed at the Tamworth Cinema between features. Some of the slides have been annotated with information about the person pictured.
