Defining World War I in words and pictures

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli, we have started off our image collection with a selection from the wonderful photographic database of the Australian War Memorial.

More than 200 entries relating to World War I have been illustrated with more than 300 images from the Australian War Memorial’s collection, illustrating the Australian experience in WWI.

To see a list of all entries that now have images, download the PDF below.
