Douglas Diggers WWI

Young men of Douglas Shire responded well to the call to serve their country during World War I, 1914-1918. We have identified around 220 men who were born or enlisted in the Shire or who enlisted elsewhere but had family addresses back in the Shire.

Here we provide summaries of their service records and short stories telling what we know of them from records or newspaper articles or contact with relatives.    

Search for Douglas Diggers by name below or by selecting from one of four campaigns on the right hand side of this page (New Guinea, Gallipoli, Middle East and Western Front).

Online records through the Australian War Memorial and the National Library of Australia, as well as the information passed on by families of Diggers, have greatly assisted our research.   If you can add more information or photos about Douglas soldiers from the First World War, either the ones we know about or any who have been missed from the list, please contact infodouglashistory.orgau

Additional information about each soldier is available at  http://discoveringanzacs.naa.gov.au
