To assist in the compilation of material for the project submissions can be made via the Gallipoli Dead submissions page.

Included in the numbers for each state are those who were born in, or enlisted from, their birth state or who spent the majority of their lives there but happened to be in another state when they enlisted.

The list will include those missing and later determined dead by Board of Inquiry, with no known grave (like the 37 10th Light Horse men who went missing in action on 8 August 1915). It will also include those who died as a result of their wounds received at Gallipoli (even if hospitalised and died elsewhere), and those who died at Gallipoli from enteric fever and self inflicted GSW.

If you would like to be a part of this project please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and you can be allocated a group of men to research. We would like people to send a photograph of a memorial from your local community or school, or provide information and a photograph of a family member who may have died during, or as a result of the Gallipoli Campaign.

Use the check lists for individuals on each of the state pages: South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia.
