This exhibition is titled "Lemnos & The Anzacs 1915 - A Story in Pictures" - and showcases forty of the most important images from the photographic record of Lemnos' role in Australian's Anzac story.
This photographic archive is located in collections across the globe, including many in Australia’s war memorials and state libraries and private collections. It consists of literally thousands of images – detailing the experience of the Anzacs and the Allies on this vital Island in Aegean. Historian and Secretary of the Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee, Mr. Jim Claven, has selected these images based on his extensive research of the Lemnos link to Anzac and placed in historical context in the exhibition’s accompanying booklet.
