Alexander Galloway's Lost Diggers of Weston

Lost to the world for almost 100 years, these photos on glass plates taken of WW1 Diggers by Alexander Galloway in 1916 just prior to their departure for Europe were discovered hidden beneath a house in Weston in 2010. 


The Coalfields Local History Association Inc and Towns with Hearts have assembled biographies of the Diggers who have been identified. The University of Newcastle is using this and other data to assemble timelines which tell their life stories in an interactive way. As the timelines are completed, links to them will appear here.
