In 2001 the history department at Warracknabeal Secondary College commenced the Gallipoli Project. The aim was the provide biographical details for all the men who enlisted in World War 1 from Western Victoria. The Year 11 and 12 students assisted in compiling this book with assistance from the Western Victorian Association of Historical Societies and materials from individuals historical groups.
The names were then cross-referenced against memorials and honour rolls for the towns and communities of Western Victoria. This gave them the names of 1073 men to research. Arranged alphabetically, each biograhical entry contains family details, enlistment and military history. Some include a photograph.
