The 22nd Battalion sustained close to 900 fatalities during the First World War, from the sailing from Australia to Egypt in May 1915, to one of the final engagements fought by the AIF in France in October 1918. In this section those that fell and would never return to their families are remembered, listed in chronological order on the centenary of their death.
Many of the men have WW1 Red Cross Files for the Wounded and Missing – click on the link for area of combat – Gallipoli, Bois Grenier, Pozieres & Mouquet Farm, Flers, Bapaume, Bullecourt (plus others to follow) – to learn more of their fate, often taken from first hand accounts from their comrades. Biographies are also provided for the men of the 5th/22nd, our focus group, that were killed during the war.
