State Library of Queensland - World War 1 soldier portraits

Region: Queensland

Description: Nearly 30,000 Queensland soldiers had their portrait taken and published in The Queenslander newspaper before embarkation to World War 1. State Library of Queensland has digitised all of these portraits. Anyone can search, view, add a comment, and download a high resolution digital file of any of the portraits in One Search, our catalogue. To search for an individual soldier, visit our catalogue: http://bit.ly/1fCPFWZ. We are also working with the National Archives of Australia to match and connect the soldier portraits with their war service record on the Discovering Anzacs website http://discoveringanzacs.naa.gov.au/. Not all soldiers can be matched, but where this is possible a link to their service record is also available. You can learn more about the soldier portraits, the digitisation project, and the invaluable contribution of our volunteers here: http://qanzac100.slq.qld.gov.au/showcase/soldier-portraits. To become a digital volunteer with SLQ, visit Pitch In! http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/about-us/pitch-in. This dataset currently contains 28,000 records, and will be updated regularly as more portraits are available. Follow this dataset to receive alerts on updates.
