MILITARY: World War II AUSTRALIA

GILLESPIES REMEMBERED

 

 

World War II: 1939–45

Almost a million Australians, both men and women, served in the Second World War. They fought in campaigns against Germany and Italy in Europe, the Mediterranean and North Africa, as well as against Japan in south-east Asia and other parts of the Pacific.

The number of individuals collected for the Nominal Roll included the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), the Australian Army, and Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as well as merchant mariners. Australians who served with other Commonwealth or Allied Forces are not included. Also those who served in the Australian Women’s Land Army, the Australian Red Cross, and philanthropic organizations are not included in this roll. A veteran was given the chance not to have his name published in this nominal roll, and hence may not be included,  unless found in another records source.
