Unknown soldiers

Australia in Palestine was purchased at the Lifeline book fair. To the surprise of the purchasers, there were images of soldiers from the First World War wedged between the pages. These photos have been shared with Wollongong City Libraries and we are now seeking the names of these unknown soldiers as well as details to put the story into context.

If anyone has any information, please let us know either through the contact page, in person at Wollongong Reference Library or calling the Reference Library on (02) 4227 7414. Please make sure let us know which photograph you are referring to.
