Summary
"The unknown story of 13 Western Australian Aboriginal Servicemen who served at Gallipoli have been brought to light in book titled They Served with Honour: Untold Stories of Western Australian Aboriginal Servicemen at Gallipoli. Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in Australia about the contribution made by Aboriginal men and women in times of war. Whilst their involvement in our nation?s more recent conflicts is featured in many contemporary publications, little is known about Aboriginal service in World War I (1914-1918), and even less about their role at Gallipoli. It is estimated around fifty Aboriginal men fought during this Campaign. The stories of those who served have to a large extent remained untold or, in some cases, known only to the immediate families. Faced with the prospect of losing these stories forever, comprehensive research has been undertaken to provide an insight into the lives of thirteen Aboriginal Western Australian servicemen who fought at Gallipoli.Their stories include tales of courage, valour, of finding love, and of their continued struggles post-war." -- [From DAA website]
