SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WW1 ABORIGINAL SOLDIERS

South Australian Aboriginal Soldiers of the First World War
is a project aimed at collecting the stories of Aboriginal soldiers from South Australia who enlisted in the first AIF. It gives names and biographical details of SA WW1 soldiers – some of which have only recently come to light. As the only blog of its kind it is a valuable source of information about SA Aboriginal war service.

Ngarrindjeri Anzacs by Doreen Kartinyeri is another valuable resource. Published in 1996, it contains studio portraits and and biographical information about WW1 men from Point Mcleay and the lower Murray and their families.
