11th Battalion Khufu Photo

11th Battalian Khufu Photo


The Project

The idea for the project came as a result of the donation of a print of the Cheops image which is now framed and hanging in the WAGS Library, coupled with a desire to expand the work of the late Allan Ellam who, in the 1980s, commenced a similar project. The WAGS Webmaster, Chris Loudon divided a digital copy of the photograph into grids and numbered each man, thereby enabling their features to be enlarged and their position in the image to be easily identified. As a result, it is hoped to identify as many of the men in the photo as possible by 10 January 2015, the centenary of the day on which the photograph was taken.

Our aim is to identify the men in the 11th Battalion Cheops photo, to pay tribute to all of the men of the 11th Battalion A.I.F., the Western Australian Battalion, and to provide an avenue for tributes to the men and family history stories to be told.
