8th Battalion WHERE ANZACS SLEEP Gallipoli Photographs
The Gallipoli photos of Captain Jack Duffy - 8th BattalionBy R.Austin
A unique historic photographic record of one Australian soldier's view of Gallipoli.
As a young man Duffy worked as a school teacher, then served 5 years in the Navy, returned to teaching and in 1915 was appointed as a sergeant in the 8th Battalion, being commissioned on Gallipoli.
After the war Duffy toured Victoria with his magic lantern show showing slides he took of Gallipoli, many of which are reproduced in this book. The many graves and poignant memorials with their simple wooden crosses have long since vanished, replaced by a forest of concrete head stones. Duffy's photos take us back over 90 years in time.
