While great recognition is given to the Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli on April 25, 1915, it is sometimes overlooked that forces from other countries were also involved.
Among the other countries forces at Gallipoli, were those of Ireland. However, there were many Irish born who wore the Australian uniform.
According to an item in The Irish Echo on the 21st April, 2014, more than 6,600 Irish-born men and women served in what was known as the Australian Imperial Force during the First World War. Almost 1,000 of them died in action or from wounds suffered in battle.
LEST WE FORGET
May I suggest just a few sites that will give you some idea of the Irish involvement in Gallipoli.
This is a booklet you can download free of charge that discusses just one division.
