WWI Soldiers at Leura
WWI Soldiers at Leura

(Dame) Eadith Walker set up “The Camp” on her Concord estate, Yaralla, to care for WWI soldiers who were suffering from tuberculosis.  She also loaned her home, “Shuna”, at Leura to the Red Cross for the same purposes.

We recently received a wonderful collection of family photographs from a Norman J. Aitken showing people at both these locations.

Unfortunately we don’t know how to contact this gentleman to try to get information about the people photographed.

Can anyone help, please?
