Like our first book, this work is truly a cooperative effort. Not only did three of us combine to write it, we were greatly assisted by many others who generously offered their time, expertise and friendship. We are especially indebted to the Cadry family, Rabbi Jeffrey Kamins, Darel Hughes, Mr Peter King MP and Niyazi Adal who first suggested we should revise and update our earlier work and who ensured we had the means to realise this ambition. John Iremonger, Ian Bowring, Emma Jurisich, Karen Penning and Catherine Taylor at Allen & Unwin enthusiastically supported us from the moment we first discussed the idea with them.
We also wish to thank our photo researcher, Carolyn Newman; Zafer Polat who provided source documents and photographs; Engin Aksaç who supplied material relating to Upfield Secondary College; Yüksel Ylmaz who helped publicise our Turkish community survey; John Mundy for advice about the Newfoundlanders at Gallipoli; Mahnur and Orhan Ug’ur for their assistance at Gallipoli; Kenan Çelik for advice on place names; Selçuk Kolay and Dr Mark Spencer regarding AE2; staff at Foto Balrm in Izmir; staff at the Çanakkale Military Museum, and Major-General Steve Gower, Ashley Ekins and Peter Stanely at the Australian War Memorial.
We are grateful to Turkish Airlines and Ahmed Bas¸ar for their generous support of our project.
In addition, we wish to acknowledge those people who materially assisted us with the first version of this book: Ron Harper, Carmel Shute, Abdul Ayan, Necati Başarin, Barbara Helper, Marianne Graham, Harvey Broadbent, Ragip Hanyal, Esen and Ertug’rul
