The Middle East and Australia

As further research to my Quorn project I have plotted the locations of the graves (red) or memorials (green) if no known grave exists.

The only exception to this is the memorial to Charles Patten whose story has not been published yet.

Charles was member of the Australian Light Horse. He was captured by the turks in Katia and held in Ankara (Angora as it was known then) as a POW. He died of malaria in hospital there and was buried in an unmarked grave which could not be found after the war. Charles' official memorial is now in Baghdad's North Gate War Cemetery in Iraq.
