Index of 11th Battalion soldiers who died on 25th April 1915.

 

Australian oficer at Lancashire Landing Cemtery Gallipoli - ex naa g00419

 

We currently have 69 11th Battalion Soldiers who died on the day of the Gallipoli landing in our index below.

These men were either;

  • Recorded as killed in action on the 25th April 1915
  • Later declared killed on the day as a result of Courts of Inquiry
  • Identified as KIA on the day by evidence obtained from other sources such as first hand accounts, from letters, diaries, or Red Cross records

25 of these men are currently identified in the Khufu pyramid photo; they are shown in the index below with their Photo ID#'s with a crop of their Khufu image. 

36 men who are possibly in the Khufu image are yet to be identified, these men are shown as NYF (Not Yet Found) in the table. There is a photo crop of 16 of the unidentified men shown below. 

19 of these 36 men are likely to be in the Khufu photo, but It is also likely that some of them were elsewhere when the photo was taken. 4 are reinforcements who won't be in the photo.

 

We are yet to obtain photos of 23 of the 69 men who died on 25 April 1915,

There is a total of 9 men noted in the table as not being in the Khufu photo. All of these men were reinforcements and arrived in Egypt after the 11th Battalion photo was taken.

ID# 082 - BIGNELL, Edwin Allen, 1078 Pte - Shown in service records as KIA 02 May 1915. His section Corporal, TS Louch, states in his memoirs that David Crerar was killed at the landing on Gallipoli, 25 April 1915.

ID# 083 - CRERAR, David Knox, 873 Pte - Shown in service record as KIA 05 May 1915, however his section Corporal TS Louch states in his memoirs that David Crerar was killed at the landing on Gallipoli, 25 April 1915.

A letter home from Ted Mofflin (Sern 464) also records that Williams was hit while standing on the deck of the destroyer.
