Diary of an ANZAC: a Gallipoli perspective
Using primary sources like the diary of Pte. H. V. Reynolds, you can guide your students through the Gallipoli campaign from the perspective of an everyday ANZAC. The diary which has been set out in a blog format explores themes of:
- Daily conditions for an ANZAC during the Gallipoli campaign.
- Loss and hardship during times of conflict.
- National identity and Australia’s place within the British Empire.
The diary used for this project belonged to Private Herbert Vincent Reynolds of Sebastopol, Victoria. Herbert joined up with the AIF in 1914 and served with the 1st Field Ambulance during the Gallipoli campaign.
