Original May 1915 letter from General Alexander Godley at Anzac Cove to Buckingham Palace
The business of Indonesia's executions

The most graphic account of our men fighting at Gallipoli you may ever read - from one of our family

Thank you to readers A&H who have been generous supporters of this website from its earliest days.

A has just sent this letter out to his family and he's shared it with us too:

Hi folks,
Yesterday I was browsing through a book mum and dad gave me years ago, “ From Randwick To Hargicourt.” It’s a history of the 3rd Battalion 1st AIF.
There was a letter from Pop Cole’s brother, Reginald Norman Cole,  to his father, James, which was published in a Sydney newspaper.
It’s a pretty graphic account of the war.
I had to scan it in two parts, someone clever might be able to put it together as one.  I’ve also included a copy of the dedication inside the front cover,written by Pop Cole to his son, Aubrey, in 1935.
Didn’t they leave us a wonderful legacy?

What an account, in the young soldier's own words.   We will remember them.  Lest we forget.
