Gallipoli Dead from Western Australia
by Shannon Lovelady

When researcher, writer and Presbyterian Ladies’ College archivist Shannon Lovelady learned no one knew how many West Australians perished at Gallipoli, she established the Gallipoli Dead from Western Australia project to determine the number.

As project leader she gathered the data and a team of skilled researchers, and worked it out.

Hear her talk about the Project – how it came about, the team involved, the sources used and the incredible stories unearthed along the way, as they worked out how many West Australians were killed at Gallipoli, and who they are.
