'Where Anzacs Sleep' is a unique historic photographic record of one Australian solder's view of Gallipoli. Captain J.S. 'Jack' Duffy served with the 8th Battallion in Gallipoli, and later with in France with the 57th Battalion.

As a young man Duffy worked as a school teacher, then served for five years in Australia's fledgling navy before returning to teaching prior to the war. He enlisted as a sergeant, and was commissioned on Gallipoli. After the war, Duffy toured Victoria with his magic lantern show, showing the slides he took of Gallipoli, and poignantly many of the graves of young Australians buried in that sacred ground.

Gallipoli has for years been a symbol of Australia's emergence to nationhood, and 'Where Anzacs Sleep' is a reminder of the dreadful human cost of that campaign. The many graves and poignant memorials with their simple wooden crosses, have long since vanished, replaced with small symmetrical headstones in the cemeteries now controlled by the CWGC. Duffy's historical photographic collection takes up back over 90 years in time, to a period when sacrifice of life was a daily occurrence. The accompanying explanatory text written by Ron Austin supplements Duffy's historic photographs.
