Welcome to our website

Our aim with this project is to help preserve our Australian WW1 military history. By showing where to record Anzac photos from the Great War and help Identify Diggers from the first A.I.F. before some of them disappear forever.

This is a Anzac Photographic Archive website to guide people to the right groups, associations & government departments who help record WW1 Military History. People from around the world are now realising the importance of this task. The First World War Centenary is here and many projects and events are under way.

DON'T FORGET THE DIGGERS is a Album of WW1 Anzac Related Photographs & Postcards from the Great War or Click on the B & W Digger Soldier Icon to see an example of my own Photostream, Albums & Favorites.

WW1 Anzac Digger Research
CURRY & MARCHMENT website has been online since 4th July 2006. It has bee a quest to find out as much as possible on my families that fought in the Great War at the Western Front 1916-1918.

Curryww1.com


Walking in the Footsteps of my Grandfathers is a technique using their Service Records related Unit War Diaries Trench Map coordinates and plotting those positions on today Battlefields. Google Earth and related Western Front Trench Maps overlapping each other is great method of finding positions. The 13th Field Artillery Brigade & 14th Machine Gun Company Units from the 5th Division are recorded Photographed and Filmed in 2008.
