As the Gallipoli Dead from Western Australia project determined how many West Australians died as a result of their Gallipoli service, WFDWA will determine the number of West Australian lives lost on the Western Front, including those killed in action or who died (anywhere) from sickness contracted or wounds sustained there, up to 31 August 1921. Until now, that number is an estimation only - 45,000-110,000 from all around Australia. Each States' figure is unknown.
