The Coalfields Heritage Group

Alexander Galloway's Lost Diggers of Weston

REPRESENTATIVES FROM TOWNS WITH HEART & THE EDGEWORTH DAVID MUSEUM IN AN INFORMATIVE AND INTERACTIVE PRESENTATION ABOUT

Alexander Galloway's Lost Diggers of Weston

Lost to the world for almost 100 years, these photos on glass plates taken of WW1 Diggers by Alexander Galloway in 1916 just prior to their departure for Europe were discovered hidden beneath a house in Weston in 2010.

The presentation will cover the story of Alexander Galloway and his tremendous legacy to the Coalfields as well as the stories (including amazing images) of the Diggers that he captured prior to their embarking for the Great War.

The presentation will also cover the Lost Diggers Exhibition scheduled for Anzac weekend, when all 60 Lost Diggers will be on public display for the first time in 103 years.
