Collection relating to the service of Lieutenant Eric Wilson Simon, MM, 15 Battalion, AIF, Gallipoli, Western Front, 1915 & 1917. Collection consists of typed copies of two letters written by Lieutenant Simon, one to his parents, written from Lemnos Island in 1915, and one to a school teacher in Brisbane (Miss Dunne) written from England in 1917. The letter to Miss Dunne is notable for its lengthy account of the action in which Lieutenant Simon and the 15 Battalion were involved, in the Gueudecourt area during late January/early February 1917.
