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:

This picture shows members of the 19th Battalion of Infantry being trained in trench work at Liverpool. While many of the recruits are expert riflemen, come have little knowledge of musketry; but any mistatkes in the handling of the rifle are speedily rectified by the instructors, and the men, being intelligent and eager to learn, soon become very fair shots.
