News Corp to publish ‘The Lost Letters’ from Aussie Diggers on Anzac Day

News Corp Australia’s state and regional mastheads will publish ‘The Lost Letters’ to commemorate Anzac Day on Thursday, April 25, bringing to life the words of Diggers not heard in over 100 years.

These letters are handwritten accounts from Anzac soldiers at Gallipoli, preserved by the Australian War Memorial and transcribed for this special occasion. The letters provide first-hand accounts from soldiers across the ranks, revealing their insights and worries during the war. These letters were sent home to family members, detailing the heroism and horrors of the campaign.

“The Gallipoli letters provide a deeply personal and poignant insight into the courage of Australian troops on the frontline,” National Executive Editor Peter Blunden said. “It’s truly remarkable that it has taken more than 100 years for these heartbreaking Anzac letters from the trenches to surface. They make compelling and inspiring reading for all Australians this Anzac Day.”

‘The Lost Letters’ will be published in The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier-Mail and The Advertiser, as well as Cairns Post, Gold Coast Bulletin, Townsville Bulletin, The Mercury, NT News and Geelong Advertiser.
