Genealogy society details Maitland men and women who were at Gallipoli during WWI

From the Maitland Mercury report:
A mission to track down the histories of Maitland soldiers and nurses who served at Gallipoli has unearthed details of 260 local people who fought there.
Pioneering work by members of Maitland and District Genealogy Society has revealed details of the service of these men and women, which has remained hidden for so long.
The society has produced a book, Maitland’s Gallipoli Campaign, which will be launched at the Maitland Heritage Research Centre in East Maitland on Friday, April 17, at 11am.
