Index of 11th Battalion soldiers who died on 25th April 1915.
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.
35 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 17 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 19 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.
