The Eleventh - Hidden Stories of the Fortress Author Series

Past Event

Albert Facey's account of his service at Gallipoli is recorded in his acclaimed autobiography, A Fortunate Life. Some have questioned his claim that he landed with the 11th Battalion on 25 April 1915.

Wes Olson, author of The Eleventh - The History of the 11th Australian Infantry Battalion 1914-1919, Volume 1, Gallipoli, studied Facey's claims while researching his latest book, and sheds new light on the iconic Western Australian's Story.
