Bonds of Sacrifice A–D
Images of World War I Australian servicemen

We are delighted the National Archives is able to share digital images of Australian World War I servicemen received from the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) in 2011.

The digital images include photographs taken in London studios while servicemen were on leave and occasional newspaper clippings.

These images were identified by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) staff member Courtney Page-Allen, a recipient of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship. To find them, she spent 18 months searching through the 16,000 World War I images held in the Bonds of Sacrifice collection of the Imperial War Museum, London.

What is their story?

These images complement the stories of Australian servicemen. To find out more about these individuals and others, you can link directly to records of service posted on the National Archives Discovering Anzacs.
