The Anzacs who came to Weymouth 1915 to 1919
We are a group of family historians in Weymouth, Dorset, part of The Somerset & Dorset Family History Society. To mark the centenary of the start of The First World War, we are researching just some of the 120 thousand sick and injured Anzac troops who were sent to our town to convalesce from the Gallipoli campaign, and later from The Western Front in France and Flanders.
So we would very much like to hear from you if you have a family connection to these soldiers, a story to tell, or any photographs showing the town, the camps or individuals at that period. In return we can supply you with photographs of the war graves of 85 or so Anzacs who lie buried in our cemeteries, and any information we hold on family trees.
