        3. Venereal Disease

        Insert image of your choice here.

        Naturally I was going for the smart-assed entry, like lice, but I just happened upon the fact that 11% of ANZACS (60,000 cases among 518,950 Australian and New Zealander personnel) were diagnosed with venereal disease before separation.

        If the ANZACS were anything like their American counterparts, the only 4% of the wartime VD contractions occurred after induction, such was the poor state of military VD diagnosis at the start of WW1.

          4. Colonel William George Malone

          Commander of the Wellington Battalion (New Zealand) at Gallipoli, he was Mentioned in Dispatches twice. Famous for capturing the heights at Chunuk Bair, he was killed by friendly artillery fire during the battle. Chunuk Bair was lost two days later when the Turkish overran the British relief force.

          You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

            5. Imperial Camel Corps

            The Imperial Camel Corps Brigade (ICCB) was a camel-mounted infantry brigade that the British Empire raised in December 1916 during the First World War for service in the Middle East.

            From a small beginning the unit eventually grew to a brigade of four battalions, one battalion each from Great Britain and New Zealand and two battalions from Australia. Support troops included a mountain artillery battery, a machine gun squadron, Royal Engineers, a field ambulance, and an administrative train.

                  btw those are actually British troops shown above digging at Gallopoli. Couldn't find a similar pic of the Aussies doing likewise.

                          Famous for inventing a self-firing "drip rifle" (using water to pull the trigger after a certain amount of drops) to cover the evacuation. Later commissioned as a Second Lieutenant, he would receive the Military Cross whilst serving on the Western Front.
